Workforce housing is any type of housing that is affordable for the working class – typically low-to-moderate income earners – that is near their jobs and other essential services.

Housing is considered affordable when a household spends no more than 30% of their monthly income on housing-related costs. Rising home prices and rents are challenges for everyone in our community, but are particularly challenging for workforce households who do not qualify for state and federal housing assistance but also do not make enough money to rent or buy on the open market.
