Affordable Housing Commission

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. 

The City of Dayton is taking proactive steps to address the local affordable housing issues.
