OUR COMMITMENT TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING

The City of Asheville remains committed to affordable housing in our community and hopes this guide is a helpful resource for individuals and families looking for a great place to live and prosper that they can afford. The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) defines affordable housing as not spending more than 30% of your gross income on housing costs. For renters, this includes rent & utilities. For homeowners, this includes your mortgage, insurance, and property taxes. Please know the City is dedicated to helping produce, preserve & protect healthy affordable mixed-income communities with a variety of housing types at a variety of price points, both homeownership, and rental, for the variety of
incomes & wages we produce in Asheville.

FAIR HOUSING

The Fair Housing act is a federal law enforced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Fair Housing Act protects tenants and prospective homebuyers of any race, color, religion, national origin, or gender, including people with disabilities and families with children, against housing discrimination. For complaints related to fair housing or housing discrimination please contact the Fair Housing Project at 1-855-797-FAIR(3247).

EXAMPLES OF HOUSING DISCRIMINATION

• Refusal to rent or sell housing or otherwise deal with an interested tenant or buyer.
• Real estate professionals or companies steering customers to certain neighborhoods or making claims about the racial makeup of an area.
• Lying about the availability of housing by telling people of color, families or disabled individuals that an apartment is already taken, when it is not.
• Refusing to permit reasonable accommodations for assistive aides, assistive animals, parking, or physical modifications to existing properties.
If you feel like you have been discriminated against you may contact the following
agencies and file a complaint:

HAVE LANDLORD TROUBLES? HERE’S A TIP:

Call HUD’s complaint hotline to report your landlord. Reach HUD’s Multifamily Housing Clearinghouse department by calling 1-800-685-8470. Detail your complaint, the nonstandard conditions you’ve documented as a tenant, your landlord’s lack of response, and the amount of time the problem has been going on. Note – this contact information is mostly for residents of HUD-insured and assisted properties but other members of the community may also call.
