As the Loudoun County Office of Housing finalizes the county’s Unmet Housing Needs Strategic Plan (UHNSP), members of the public are invited to review the draft plan and share their feedback.
The strategic plan is designed to help the county and its partners improve housing access, quality and affordability for all families. It identifies strategies and actions to address unmet housing needs in a systematic and comprehensive way with integrated programs. The plan will also aim to create housing targets over the short term and the long term (the next five years).
Review the Draft Strategic Plan
The draft plan was presented to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors at its April 6, 2021, business meeting. The Board’s feedback and input from the public will be included in the final draft plan, which is scheduled to be presented to the Board at its May 12, 2021, public hearing.

After reviewing the draft strategic plan, residents are invited to share their feedback online and in person.
The UNHSP has five objectives with specific strategies and key actions that will help the county address housing needs:
- Establish a coordinated, collaborative and integrated housing network.
- Secure land resources needed to address unmet housing needs.
- Obtain viable funding sources.
- Provide incentives, establish priorities and increase access to affordable housing.
- Implement policy changes to support affordable housing production and preservation.
These five objectives and their associated key actions provide a comprehensive approach, based on research, best practice, and Loudoun County’s specific housing needs and housing market, to start addressing the affordability gaps that exist in the county.
