Kent County Housing Needs Assessment

Kent County is a leader in population and job growth. Our success leads to new challenges, including increasing concerns over housing availability and affordability. The data shows that housing supply has not kept pace with our growth, creating significant upward pressure on housing costs. The business community has listed housing supply as a top policy priority – it was ranked 3rd in our 2020 annual survey of membership.
