Westcott Ridge

These ten condominiums were purchased by the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority as part of the Magnet Housing Program, which provides an affordable housing option for participants in the County's Fire and Rescue training program. Trainees are entitled to rent these units during their 6-month training period, as well as during the subsequent one-year probationary period for new firefighters upon completion of training. Rents are determined on the basis of residents' income levels, offering a lower-cost alternative to the community's first responders. In 2005, the Magnet Housing Program was expanded to include Police Cadets.
