Wake County Affordable Housing Plan

Archives 
Approximately 56,000 working families who make less than $39,000 a year in Wake County are currently unable to find affordable housing. Current trends show that number may increase to as many as 150,000 households over the next 20 years.

To address this growing need, the Wake County Board of Commissioners approved the 20-year Affordable Housing Plan developed by the Affordable Housing Steering Committee.

2018 CAPER


Wake County has prepared the 2018 CAPER (Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report).

Analysis of Impediments 
to Fair Housing Choice

This document is a comprehensive review of Wake County's demographics, economics, housing, land use, zoning, transportation, and other conditions. It takes the data from this review and assesses how these conditions impede the availability and accessibility of housing to the protected classes. It then describes actions the community can take to overcome identified impediments. A fair housing plan is then developed as part of the five-year Consolidated Plan. The fair housing plan describes the actions Wake County's Housing program will take to address the identified impediments.
