Housing is a concern that affects living conditions for populations in every county of the Northeast Florida Region. Affordable housing, as defined by the Florida Affordable Housing Study Commission Final Report, is “housing that costs no more than 30 to 35 percent of a householder’s income.” When housing costs exceed this level, our residents may experience difficulty in building wealth and achieving the quality of life we aspire to for all residents.
The Council reviews Comprehensive Plans and significant developments related to their impact on affordable housing in the Region. The Council’s Affordable Housing Committee has created an Affordable Housing Needs Plan.
