The Affordable Housing Master Plan (AHMP) is a policy framework for a shared community vision for meeting the housing needs of Arlington through 2040. The AHMP provides policy guidance for a broad range of housing efforts, ranging from “bricks and mortar” projects, to services to prevent and end homelessness, to affirmatively furthering fair housing. Its three overarching goals are:
- Arlington County shall have an adequate supply of housing available to meet community needs.
- Arlington County shall ensure that all segments of the community have access to housing.
- Arlington County shall ensure that its housing efforts contribute to a sustainable community.
Process and Goals
As an element of the County’s Comprehensive Plan, the AHMP is typically reviewed and updated every five years. The County will use this process to update the current needs and projections in the AHMP, and engage the community to ensure that the AHMP continues to comprehensively address the future housing affordability needs of Arlington. The final outcomes will be reflected in an Affordable Housing Master Plan Review Report.
