Affordable Housing Strategy

Ensuring both the availability and the affordability of housing are important for fostering a strong and vibrant community. The focus of the Northumberland County Affordable Housing Strategy is to increase the supply of housing throughout Northumberland at various levels of affordability, in order to meet the needs of our residents.

This strategy recommends 44 actions to help address key local housing gaps. These actions include policy and process changes, as well as planning and financial incentives that the County and member municipalities can use to encourage the development of additional affordable rental and ownership units.

The Strategy helps organizations and networks to align the work they are doing and identify priorities and actions that will support the development of new and improved programs that consider affordable housing
