The Wake County Housing and Community Revitalization Division (HCR) distributes funds based upon priorities established in the 5 year Consolidated Plan, a document that describes housing needs and sets forth strategies to meet those needs.  Because the demand for housing exceeds that which can be produced with available funds, priorities have been established for spending: very low-income individuals and families (annual income below $30,640 for a family of four) who have the most acute housing needs receive the highest priority.

Housing and Community Revitalization Division  919-856-5689
The Wake County Housing and Community Revitalization (HCR) Division assists with funding for construction of various types of affordable housing for low–income individuals, seniors and families.  Development is encouraged by making low-interest loans to developers. Funding for Housing comes from HOME and Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and from Wake County’s Capital Improvement Plan budget.  The Housing Division assists with both large scale and small scale developments.
To apply to build affordable housing, please see the Request for Proposals section below.
