Affordable Housing is a broad subject, with many causes and solutions that vary depending on your location.
In Durham North Carolina one of the main drivers to a lack of affordable housing is the large economic
disparity of its citizens. Half of the city is a World class center for research and technology, while the
other half is a recovering post industrial tobacco and textile mill town. Durham has been ranked one of the
most affluent towns in America, based on income and affordability. However, it has also been ranked as having one of the
highest wage inequalities in America.
