The challenge to meet affordable housing needs is a problem for many units of local government. This paper focuses on an approach to increase affordable housing in a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) and mixed-use development that will create social equity and economic equality as well as effort to enhance community vitality. This paper intends to clarify the importance of increasing affordable housing through inclusive communities in a high-density suburban community of Loudoun County, Virginia. The paper uses an approach of an in-depth literature review, research studies, Loudoun County Government records, and case studies of TOD relevant to this challenge. The findings and insights of this paper intend to demonstrate that social equity and inclusion are indispensable key elements for sustainable development in a high-density community that will generate social progress, economic equality, and a healthy living environment. Furthermore, this thesis argues the importance to include an inclusive community in TOD and mixed-use development to address the housing needs for extremely low-income individuals searching for fair treatment and opportunity.
