Vancouver Housing Authority to urge state to redefine affordable housing

Date Published: 
December 5th, 2019

From The Columbian:

Vancouver Housing Authority looks to change the state’s definition of affordable housing. Currently under state law affordable rental housing means costs (including utilities) do not exceed 30 percent of a household’s monthly income.

This definition, however, doesn’t jibe with how much the housing authority asks its Section 8 subsidized rent tenants to contribute toward housing costs and that could be problematic, the housing authority said.
