Housing Assistance

Housing Assistance

Government-funded programs that provide affordable housing for low-income people, the elderly, and the disabled.

Affordable Housing


Proponents of affordable housing believe that this policy improves the housing quality and safety of low-income individuals and families who are unable to afford market-rate housing. They also argue that affordable housing stabilizes local economies by keeping workers and consumers in place.

Market Rate Housing


Opponents of affordable housing believe that the policy decreases property values and increases taxes to cover social service burdens. They also argue that affordable housing may lead to increased crime rates and diminished public safety as residents are not as invested in their communities.
