Affordable Housing Input NeededTo prioritize, plan and implement affordable housing goals in Denton, please share your feedback and input to let us know what affordable housing means for you, your family, or business.

The need for housing that is affordable for people at all income levels is not unique to Denton. Access to safe, affordable housing is a topic of concern across the county, region and nation. Determining housing affordability is complex and commonly a combination of factors within the housing system that includes household incomes, housing costs, housing supply and housing demand.

Denton's unique mix of historical investment, current inventory, development practices and future growth all shape any potential housing strategies defined by policy and investment. The City of Denton plays a role in helping the community with affordable housing for families earning the lowest wages - from working as a partner with non-profit housing agencies to providing fee waivers to developers for the development of affordable housing or nonprofit facilities.

In 2020, the City completed Phase 1 of an Affordable Housing Assessment analyzing primary needs and characteristics of Denton's diverse housing market. You can find the report, Affordable Housing Needs & Market Value Analysis, in the Resources and Document Library. According to the report, Denton needs more homes-for-sale priced below $200,000 and rental units priced below $900 per month to accommodate existing and future families in the City.

Community input received through this forum will be considered in the development of a toolbox report prioritizing affordable housing strategies in Denton.
