Affordable Housing

The Town of Manteo is happy to introduce its Affordable Housing Program. This program is intended to provide housing of high quality located in neighborhoods throughout the community for households of all income levels, ages and sizes in order to meet the town's goal of preserving and promoting a culturally and economically diverse population in our community.

The Town recognizes the need to provide affordable housing to low and moderate-income households in order to maintain a diverse population and to provide housing for those who live or work in the town. Without intervention, the trend toward increasing housing prices will result in an inadequate supply of affordable housing for town residents and local employees, which will have a negative impact upon the ability of local employers to maintain an adequate local work force and will otherwise be detrimental to the public health, safety, and welfare of the town and its residents.
