The City of Winston-Salem is proud of its relationships with area stakeholders in the fields of construction, planning and design and property management. We are dedicated to working with each of these partners to advance our community’s shared vision of affordable housing for each citizen of Winston-Salem. 

Several funding sources are used to finance construction and development, and are awarded to developers willing and able to meet the following criteria:

  • Serve persons at or below a certain income limit 
  • Structure funds as gap financing in the form of a low interest loan 
  • Abide by a period of affordability, preserved via a deed restriction 
  • Limit rents to amounts affordable to households at or below certain income thresholds
