What is Affordable Housing?

Sometimes families struggle to afford their house or apartment and still make ends meet. But everybody needs a place to eat, sleep, study, and play. Affordable housing helps make sure families don’t pay too much for a safe home in a neighborhood with good schools, grocery stores, libraries, and other nearby necessities. When families have affordable housing, children do better in school and have a chance for a healthier and happier life. We all benefit when our communities grow and our neighbors find those special places they can call home.
