Prince William County
Affordable Housing Priorities:
Fix the Critical Housing Shortage in Prince William County
Prince William is currently in need of 8,800 affordable housing units, which is the result of years of exclusionary zoning practices. We need to update our zoning policies NOW to allow the building of additional affordable housing units.
Bridge the Gap in Affordable Housing Locations
Prioritize inclusionary zoning and make affordable housing accessible throughout the entire county. What little exists is all located on the Eastern end of the county. Everyone deserves to be able to live and work in the same community.
Hold the Line Against Anti-Affordable Housing Interests
There are efforts underway to make portions of western Prince William County off-limits to affordable housing through the latest form of exclusionary housing, which only hurts the people that need access to affordable housing most – teachers, police officers, firefighters, and our government workers who work every day to serve everyone throughout the entire county.
Ensuring Future Generations can Live Here
According to state estimates, Prince William County is lacking 8,800 affordable housing units, and with an estimated population growth of 76,624 by 2040, it’s only going to get worse if we don’t take action now! We cannot tackle this problem one house at a time. We need the Board of County Supervisors to prioritize policies that will allow for the density required to fill this housing gap.
