Preliminary results of affordable housing survey point to financial struggle: city official

Some people were greater than 50 per cent, Watt said, making it one of the biggest findings of the survey.

Over half of the people who took part in an affordable housing survey in the city in January spend nearly half of their monthly income on their accommodations, a city development and engineering department technologist says.

Graham Watt revealed some of the preliminary results of the City of Grand Forks’ Affordable Housing Survey in a city council meeting Jan. 30, including the fact that 54 per cent of the survey respondents spend between 30 to 50 per cent of their monthly income on housing.
