It's important to note, the AHAC is not looking to create a housing authority, nor are they focusing on Section 8 housing. They are, however, being proactive in developing a plan that would encourage developers to include some affordable housing options within their developments. This is intended to provide options for working families who struggle to find safe and affordable housing for their families.
Guidelines issued by the Housing and Urban Development indicates that an individual with a salary of $32,000 per year should not be paying more than $800 monthly. As most of you know, there aren't many options in Nassau County that would meet that criteria. AHAC is working to address that. Please read the attached Press Release from AHAC Chairmanm, Justin Taylor, to gain a better understanding on this very important issue.
The AHAC Committee meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. Meetings are held in the Commission Chambers located at 96135 Nassau Place, Yulee, FL 32097. The public is always welcome to attend and participate in these meetings.
If you have any questions, Chairman Taylor can be reached at (904) 625-5624.
