Wake County, NC Lease 2 Home initiative creates incentives for expanded affordable housing options

Wake County, NC Lease 2 Home Affordable Housing Incentives


Wake County built a Lease 2 Home app in-house for streamlined housing matches. Social service providers work with housing-insecure residents on finding available housing through the app. The county's Landlord Engagement Unit (LEU) recruited housing providers with incentives including $500 per signed lease and $1,000 for damages beyond security deposits. County officials hope for 50 participating landlords and 300 new affordable units in Lease 2 Home's first year.

It was created with the intention of bridging the gap between Housing Provider Partners with affordable rental homes and Wake County residents who are seeking permanent affordable housing.
