Workforce Housing is housing that is affordable to the average working person. In many communities, the people who provide vital services – teachers, police officers, nurses, medical personnel, service workers, etc. – often cannot themselves afford to live there.
Workforce housing is designed for people who make up to 120% of area median income – $97,320 for a family of four*. Families who fall into this income category have found it difficult to purchase a home that is adequate for their needs.
