3 Housing Directors

Panel discussion on affordable housing.

“Where Will Our Jobs Sleep at Night?”

According to the latest projections from GMU’s Center for Regional Analysis, Northern Virginia is estimated to add over 440,000 net new jobs by 2032. To ensure that this employment growth can occur, a sufficient supply of housing must be available for these new workers—in the right locations, of the right types, and at affordable prices and rents. Otherwise, those jobs and that growth may go someplace else.

Be a part of this conversation and join our panel discussion with the Directors of Housing from the City of Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax counties as we examine our present and future housing challenges, share best practices and explore ways to collaborate regionally.
