What is affordable housing?
Affordable housing is a statewide issue, and municipalities in Washington State are taking steps to address this issue in various ways. Housing is considered "affordable" if the household is paying no more than 30% of their income for housing costs, including utilities. A household is "cost-burdened" if more than 30% of household income is paid towards housing and utility costs. In the City of Dayton, 46% of renter households and 40% of owner households are cost-burdened. Efforts to reduce the number of cost-burdened households will directly benefit the entire community by offering aid to achieving resiliency and creating an economically strong, vibrant, and healthy community.
