Decent Pay, Decent Housing elusive in Asheville?

Asheville and Buncombe County have made a stronger effort to build affordable housing, sinking $17.4 million into developments between 2007-13, with money coming from federal, city and county funding.

During that time, the Asheville Housing Trust Fund accounted for $1.7 million in spending, while $3.6 million came through Buncombe.

Asheville has made strides, according to the “Affordable Housing Scorecard,” authored by researcher Mai Thi Nguyen, putting 461 rental units and 223 homes on the market between 2007-13. The city paid $10,000 for Nguyen’s report, and City Council again made affordable housing a top priority at a planning retreat.
