Why Invest in Affordable Housing?

Doesn’t housing that’s affordable only provide a benefit to those who need it? Why should I care about this issue? When local governments invest in housing production and preservation, and adopt policies that ensure housing opportunities for families and individuals of all incomes, everyone benefits!

Why Invest in Affordable Housing? is a compendium of source material explaining how housing choices (or the lack thereof) touch all aspects of community life from transportation and mobility, employee recruitment and retention to family stability and a child’s educational outcomes. And together, these outcomes have a signficant impact on our region as a whole.

We are grateful to Klein Hornig for their time in researching and compiling this material, and we thank them for their continued support of community outreach and housing education.
