Affordable Housing Framework 2016 - 2020

Housing Framework

Available Description

Published in February 2014, the Maxfield study found that the vacancy rate for affordable senior rentals was 0.8 percent in December, compared to a 4.6 percent vacancy in senior market rate housing. To meet the anticipated demand, the report suggests that an average of 126 affordable senior housing units need to be built annually through 2020, compared to the average of 8 units a year that were added from 2006 to 2012. The demand for market rate senior housing is expected to go from adding 16 units a year to an average of 251 a year. Many such projects are already under construction or in the pipeline for coming years.
