The development is anticipated to be affordable to households with incomes up to 80% of Area Median Income (AMI). The CDA and Twin Cities Habitat will work with identified buyers to ensure mortgage readiness including Homestretch homebuyer counseling, land trust education, and ongoing post-purchase homeowner education opportunities. In addition, the CDA will commit to keeping the home affordable to households at or below 80% AMI as defined by household size and unit.
