Affordable Housing

Walton Building

Decent, affordable housing is vital to the health of a community. Housing is defined as affordable if a family spends no more than 30% of their gross income on housing costs. A household that pays more than 50% of their income for housing is considered severely cost burdened, and their ability to afford basic necessities such as food, clothing, transportation and medical care, are compromised.

City of Bellingham Funding Opportunites - Although the City does not provide or manage affordable housing, it does provide financial assistance to develop and operate housing.

Affordable Housing Partners - Creating and operating affordable housing requires many agencies to work together to meet the needs in our community. The City helps support some of these programs financially, but the activities are carried out directly by that agency. Click here for a list of partnering agencies.

Project Management Resources - The following links provide information and resources for housing providers that use City funds so that contract compliance is achieved.
