The Moderately Priced Housing Program was approved by County Council in January 2006 with pilot program status. In January 2008 that test period ended. In March 2008 the Department approved three projects and one project in December 2008 to participate in the MPHU Program.
In April 2013, County Council adopted an amendment to the MPHU Ordinance expanding the household income qualifications of the program. The program is now available to those households earning 50% to 125% of the Area Median Income for Sussex County.
