AHAC Committee Meeting
The Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) consists of voluntary local business professionals and residents of Jackson County, who actively seek ways to improve, encourage and facilitate affordable housing throughout the County. The committee is also responsible for recommending revisions or amendments to the Local Housing Plan, a plan that is updated triennially and approved by the Board of County Commissioners.
On May 26, 2020 the Board of County Commissioners appointed 11 members who are local citizens representing the residential home building industry, banking/mortgage lending industry, engaged in the labor home building, advocate for low-income persons, for profit and not-for-profit providers of affordable housing, real estate professional in connection with affordable housing, local planning committee member actively serving, citizens residing within the jurisdiction of the local governing body, citizen who is an elected official, and a citizen who represents employers.
