Finding Affordable Housing Developments in Fullerton
The City of Fullerton and the Successor Agency to the former Fullerton Redevelopment Agency have provided financial assistance to facilitate the development of rent-restricted housing throughout the City. The City has agreements with the owners of these locations, which restrict the rents to amounts below regular market rental rates. Households must meet specified income requirements, which may vary from development to development. Interested applicants may contact on-site property management regarding vacancies within the development and income requirements.
These affordable housing developments are for families, seniors, and the handicapped. Some of the locations contain units which are set aside for low-income households while others accommodate low-income households only. A phone number and a contact person have been provided to obtain information on rent rates and estimated move-in dates.
