Low Income Households on Cape Cod

HUD has just completed its analysis of the 2007-2011 American Community Survey Census data and published information down to the town level of numbers of households (renters and owners) with housing problems – on the Cape it primarily is cost burden of paying more than 30% of income toward housing.  That data is available for the County and all 15 towns on the CCC web site- – go to Departments, Planning and Community Development, Affordable Housing, Resources and Links, Data.

If you are interested in looking at the data on a sub-regional or multi-town basis, visit the HUD site.  Attached from this data set is a low income chart of the numbers and % of households (not population) in the County and each community who is considered low income, i.e. income equal to or less than 80% of area median income, and thus who would generally be eligible for affordable housing purposes.
