The Town is committed to monitoring our affordable housing progress to the community. Subscribe to News Flashes to receive e-mail notifications of updates.
Affordable housing is identified in Elevate Black Mountain, the Town's comprehensive plan updated in 2021. Soon after, The Town Council unanimously passed a resolution in support of developing relationships and researching methods of developing affordable housing. This page is a reflection of the Town's commitment to implementation of the comprehensive plan and is intended to serve as resources for the community and to provide updates and news related to the development of affordable housing.
The North Carolina Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate in housing because of race, color, religion, sec, national origin, physical or mental handicaps, or family status (families with children). The law applies to the sale, rental or financing of residential housing.
What is "affordable"?
The Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines an "affordable dwelling" as one that a household can obtain for 30% or less of its income.
