Social Housing

Published By: City of Surry,

Non-market social housing refers to non-profit and co-operative housing models where rents are subsidized for individuals and families with low incomes. Households are generally expected to spend 30% of their income on shelter, a widely accepted benchmark of housing affordability. Social housing offers physical and financial stability that allow individuals and families to make difficult life transitions and make ends meet. The number of non-market social housing units in Surrey is a measure of how much affordable housing is available.
