Affordable workforce housing is housing for individuals and families earning low to middle-income levels (geographically based)

One of the largest and most concerning population trends throughout the nation is the growing number of individuals and families struggling to find affordable homes. On average, the jobs that millennials now have often do not pay well enough to afford homes near their work. This means that these individuals often must travel long distances, on a daily basis, or find temporary accommodations in cheap hotels, just to arrive at their job site for their workday.

For millennials without affordable housing nearby their place of employment, life can be difficult.
