Workforce Housing Program

Palm Beach County's Workforce Housing Program (WHP) is a mandatory program that provides for the development of workforce housing units in all new residential developments within the Urban Suburban Tier, in unincorporated Palm Beach County. The program is intended to serve the housing needs of people employed in the jobs that the general population of the community relies upon to make the community economically viable.
