AB 987 – Low to Moderate Income Housing Fund: Affordability Covenants and Restrictions
In October 2007, the Governor signed AB 987 making it effective as of January 1, 2008. One of the requirements of AB 987 is for redevelopment agencies to compile, maintain, and make available to the public a database of existing, new and substantially rehabilitated income restricted units developed or otherwise assisted with moneys from the Low and Moderate Income Housing fund. The database must be located on the internet and updated on an annual basis. Please note that housing units created or rehabilitated for victims of domestic violence will be excluded from the public database.
Pursuant to AB 987, click here
for the database of affordable ownership and rental units assisted by the City of Turlock Redevelopment Agency.
