Wake County Affordable Housing Plan

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 this 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.

Citizen Participation Plan

The Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) outlines how the public can access information regarding the County’s HUD grant programs. It describes how the public will be notified of program activities, projects which could result in the displacement and actions that would be undertaken if such displacement were to occur. The goal of the CPP is to provide all citizens of our community with adequate opportunities to participate in an advisory role in the planning, implementation and assessment of the County’s HUD grant programs.

2020-2025 Consolidated Plan

The 2020–2025 Consolidated Plan is a five-year plan to address the low-income housing and community development needs in Wake County. It includes a housing and homeless needs assessment and market analysis, a strategic plan and a one-year Action Plan.

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.
