Editor’s note: Frequently misunderstood as being government supplied housing, “affordable housing” affects everybody, across all income brackets, and – in essence – means spending a sustainable amount of your income on a place to live.
In Wilmington, that’s becoming increasingly difficult to do for many.
This series was meant to take a deeper look, from the facts and figures to personal stories to possible solutions. We hope it will serve as a foundation and a resource for those working to understand affordable housing and a point of reference for future stories.
