Regional Workforce Housing Strategy (Executive Summary)

Commissioned by Capital Crossroads and partners, the Workforce Housing Strategy looks at how our regional housing market fails households working for hourly wages, especially those earning under $35,000/year. The report found that growth in jobs and workers is increasingly suburban

It suggests ways in which all regional communities can join together to meet regional priorities:

  • that housing should be located near job centers,

  • that it should be affordable at real wages being paid, and

  • that the region's supply of housing should be equitable.
