Midvale seeks to improve the appeal of housing in Midvale City by strengthening existing neighborhoods, providing opportunities for new development, promoting a broad range of housing choices for all income levels, and addressing housing market imbalances through comprehensive policies and programs. Through strategic partnerships and community collaborations, we work to develop new housing projects, improve existing neighborhoods, and ensure that our city remains an attractive and welcoming place to call home.
Homeownership and Home Repair Initiatives
Midvale City's Redevelopment Agency has joined forces with NeighborWorks Salt Lake to introduce two beneficial programs for our residents. The first one, known as the Down Payment Assistance Program, offers loans and grants to help low- to moderate-income individuals buying their first homes in Midvale City. This program aims to ensure fair access to home ownership and enhance community knowledge about the home buying process. The second initiative, the Home Repair Loan Program, supports low- to moderate-income homeowners in addressing emergency repairs, safety concerns, blight removal, energy conservation, and overall housing preservation.
The Midvale City Housing Plan has been developed by aligning with the housing objectives set forth in the 2016 General Plan. It incorporates up-to-date information, industry best practices, and valuable input from the public to define specific goals and strategies for advancing the city's housing agenda. This plan not only highlights existing and potential challenges within Midvale's housing market but also lays out comprehensive citywide policies designed to effectively tackle these issues. It serves as a roadmap for the improvement of our neighborhoods, the reinforcement of existing ones, and the facilitation of Midvale's future growth.

Housing Authorities typically maintain a waiting list for vacant units and available housing vouchers. To be eligible for a housing voucher or other housing assistance at a Housing Authority, you must meet certain income thresholds based on your household size. Contact the Housing Authority in your area for more information or to apply for housing assistance.
