Since the late 1990’s, Sacramento County has offered three impact fee deferral programs to encourage economic development, affordable housing and residential developments.  The three programs allow for the deferral of impact fees for Affordable Housing (also includes fee waivers), residential, and non-residential projects.  The programs allow developers/homebuilders to pay a small portion of development impact fees at building permit, and defer or delay paying the remainder of the fees until a later date (deferral period varies).

Development Impact Fees are fees collected at building permit issuance to fund a variety of major public facilities such as road, transit, sewer, drainage, water supply, library and park improvements.
