Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing

Housing is considered affordable if it costs one-third or less of a household’s income and is stabilized to avoid rent increases over time.

Affordable Housing Q&A

Why is affordable housing an issue?
Affordable housing can allow residents financial security and stability. However, many landlords and property owners argue that stabilized rents for affordable housing make renovating and maintaining property difficult or impossible. There are different opinions about the impact of affordable housing on neighborhoods, whether or not the government is obligated to provide and create affordable housing, and how and to whom affordable housing should be made available.
