City of Richmond Housing Affordability Profile: Affordable Housing Strategy 2017–2027 Companion Document

Housing affordability continues to be a critical issue both regionally and at the local level. Richmond’s Affordable Housing Strategy 2017–2027 has been updated to reflect current and future needs of the community and to align with City and regional planning goals. Central to this update is an understanding of the housing affordability context in Richmond and the needs of existing and future residents so that anticipated policy recommendations can effectively address identified gaps and priorities. The Housing Affordability profile helps to identify current and emerging trends relative to Richmond’s housing market and highlights affordability needs through an analysis of available current demographic and housing data. The document combines quantitative analysis with feedback from a broad range of stakeholders including the public, senior government and the private and non-profit housing sectors, to determine housing gaps and needs in Richmond. The Housing Affordability Profile is one of two companion documents to the Affordable Housing Strategy 2017–2027.
