The purpose of this program is to help employees defray the costs of purchasing or renting their first primary residence in Arlington through a grant. There are two types of grants: a Housing Purchase Grant and a Housing Rental Grant. The Housing Purchase Grant is conditional upon three years of continued employment with Arlington Public Schools (APS).
Any full-time, permanent employee working 30 or more hours per week is eligible for the Housing Purchase Grant or the Housing Rental Grant. There are no limits regarding income or type of housing. No credit checks are conducted.
For FY18 (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018), the Housing Purchase Grant is equal to 1% of the full-purchase price to a maximum of $6,000. The Housing Rental Grant is $500.
