  1. About the Plan
  2. Community Engagement Opportunities


Developed through a strategic planning process, the UNHSP will steer the solutions that address the county’s unmet housing needs. The issue of unmet housing needs is complex and will require the community to come together to solve it.  


The UHNSP will identify strategies and tools, as well as housing targets, to address housing needs at each level of Area Median Income up to 100% (or $121,300 for a family of 4 in 2019). The UHNSP will identify housing targets over the short term (the next five years) and the long term. Anticipated strategies may include both market-driven and more traditional approaches, including enhanced and new programs and initiatives.

Planning Process

The planning process is anticipated to require 12 to 14 months to complete, including ongoing community engagement, a program assessment and enhancement phase, and a strategy development phase.

Connecting with the community will be a key component of this plan and will include multiple opportunities for engagement. All community engagement events will be publicized and posted on the Loudoun County Government Master Calendar.An image of the process for developing the Unmet Housing Needs Strategic Plan.
