ACCAP Affordable Housing

 

Affordable Housing is a partnership between ACCAP and Anoka County Corrections to construct affordable housing in Anoka County. The goal of the program is to build two new homes each year using inmate labor to reduce construction costs making homeownership for eligible buyers very affordable.

These homes are available to buyers who have completed the Home Ownership Program offered by ACCAP.

Our mission is to create equal housing opportunities for all persons living in America by administering programs that prohibit discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, and familial status.

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The 1988 Fair Housing Amendments Act expanded coverage to prohibit discrimination based on disability or familial status (presence of child under age of 18 and pregnant women) and established new enforcement mechanisms for HUD and the Department of Justice.
