The Town of Cary is committed to providing quality housing programs that enhance and strengthen our community. Our mission is to address the needs of low- and moderate-income residents, improve and expand the Town's housing stock, and encourage the physical and economic revitalization of the Town's neighborhoods. Therefore, Cary engages in a number of strategies to maintain and enhance a wide range of housing choices for both renters and buyers.
Imagine Cary Community Plan
With the adoption of the Cary Community Plan in 2017, the Town reaffirmed its policy to encourage and support the provision of affordable housing, particularly in response to the changing needs of Cary’s families in the coming years. The Town has identified as a priority increasing the amount of affordable housing to help promote economic, racial and ethnic diversity while also enlarging the pool of workers for local employers, including Town government. The Town helps to provide affordable housing within its limits by providing funding assistance to developers and non-profit organizations to build low-cost housing for homeownership and affordable rental apartments.
The Town, in partnership with HR&A Advisors, is currently undertaking a Housing Study which will be an update to the 2010-2020 Cary Affordable Housing Plan. We expect the Housing Study to be completed within the next year.
