Attainable affordable housing is a critical issue touching each of us.  From teachers to care-givers and small business-owners to firefighters – we all are affected by the availability of affordable housing.  Everyone wants to be part of the community where they work.  


Using 30% affordable housing definition

Cornelius, NC as of Sept. 2022 

Average 2-bedroom rent - $1900

Average home rental - $2,344

According to HUD affordable housing is households spending 30% or less on housing costs, including rent or mortgage payments, utilities, and other fees.

Spending over 30% is considered housing cost burdened or housing insecure. This means that a person, such as a school teacher making $44,000 should be paying no more than $1,100 in housing costs (rent and utilities).


As a Community Development Corporation, the Lake Norman CDC is a non-profit creating diverse affordable housing opportunities that are attainable for moderate income households in our region.  We are committed to changing lives and strengthening our community through safe, service-enriched affordable housing programs.
