Housing Matters

Quality, affordable housing that is accessible to good jobs, good schools and public transportation will benefit everyone in Fairfax County. As Chair, I will prioritize building affordable housing for Fairfax County residents. I was honored to be appointed by Governor Terry McAuliffe to serve as Chair of the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA), where I helped make it possible for thousands of moderate income Virginians to buy a home. During my time with VHDA, the organization originated loans that helped nearly 8,000 families purchase homes and provided homebuyer education to 127,000 Virginians.


  • Originated $6.9 billion of homeownership loans which served 38,571 households.
  • Issued $460.8 million of Mortgage Credit Certificates serving 11,853 households.
  • Provided Homebuyer Education for 127,482 individuals (either in-person or online).


  • Originated $2.7 billion of rental loans which financed 474 developments with 40,600 units.
  • Issued federal low income housing tax credits that generated approximately $2.5 billion of equity to be used in the construction/rehabilitation of 395 rental developments with 32,678 units serving persons with incomes at or below 60% of the area’s median income.
  • Disbursed $995 million of federal rental assistance to very low income households.

REACH Virginia

  • Allocated $217.7 million of internally generated funds to VHDA’s REACH Virginia initiative which provides financing, grants and technical assistance to support the housing needs of Virginia’s diverse communities.

Capital Markets

  • Issued $3.9 billion of taxable and tax-exempt bonds.
  • Issued $5.3 billion of Ginnie Mae and Fannie Mae mortgage backed securities.
