Much of the focus on addressing affordable housing issue is on building more affordable housing – and rightly so, given the rapid population growth, uneven prosperity, and competitive housing market in our region. However, many communities, urban and rural, have existing housing that is affordable to low- and moderate-income families, including older single-family neighborhoods and mobile home parks. Some of this housing stock is vacant, blighted, unsafe, or at risk of being bought up and converted to higher-priced housing or other uses. This session will focus on how to use data and build partnerships to identify opportunities to leverage this existing housing to address affordable housing needs.
