Q: What is Affordable Housing?
A:

Affordable Housing for an individual household is generally defined as shelter costs (rent or mortgage and property taxes, plus heating and electricity costs), that do not exceed 30% of gross household income. In practice, some municipalities use a low end of market rate i.e. 20% below current market levels as their measure of affordability and one that fits within the definition of affordable housing.
