Housing Affordability and Community Revitalization

Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home.

Wake County is currently working on an eviction prevention program that will be aimed at helping Wake County renters struggling to make their past due rent payments and avoid eviction. Check back for updates!
Wake County is one of the fastest growing communities in the United States. Our growth means it’s becoming harder to make sure everyone can afford a home.
If you or someone you know is experiencing a housing crisis, please contact a Coordinated Entry Access site to connect with community resources. 

Planning for success. Working for you.

In October 2017, Wake County released its Affordable Housing Plan – a comprehensive collection of strategies to address housing affordability in our community well into the future.

Now, all of these strategies are available online – including a comparison of their estimated costs and impacts, and updates about their implementation progress.

One shared goal. Many different resources.

Wake County government, municipal governments and community organizations within our county all offer housing support and resources, including emergency short-term housing and shelter.

Work with us to make a difference.

We work with many different private and public sector partners to achieve our mission. From grants and land transactions to requests for proposals, find a way to work with Wake County on housing today.
