  3. Affordable Housing Projects:The City of Fountain Valley previously provided funds to developers for the development of affordable housing units. In return, all of the units in the affordable projects are required to be sold to income eligible households, at an affordable price. Occassionally, these units come up for resale. Subsequent buyers must meet income eligiblity and affordability criteria for the term of the affordability. PLEASE NOTE : The City of Fountain Valley does not maintain a list of units currently available for sale. The City does not pre-qualify homebuyer when no units are available, and therefore does NOT maintain a list of potentially eligible homebuyers. Additionally, The City of Fountain Valley will only review potential buyer documentation, at the time an offer is being presented to the listing agent for a unit currently for sale.
