Richmond, Va. – On behalf of the Capital Region Collaborative, the Partnership for Housing Affordability has commissioned a report to address current and future housing needs for the Richmond region, impediments to meeting these needs, and proposed strategies based on successful case studies. The report provides an affordable housing gap analysis and outlines strategies we can employ to close the gap and measure progress over the next fifteen years.
The Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech and the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis at Virginia Commonwealth University have prepared the report, with the support of The Community Foundation Serving Richmond & Central Virginia; Housing Virginia; The National Association of REALTORS®, through a Housing Opportunity Grant; The Richmond Association of REALTORS®; Virginia Housing Development Authority; and Virginia Nonprofit Housing Coalition.
Presenters from the Partnership for Housing Affordability, TowneBank Richmond, The Community Foundation, the Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech, and the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis at Virginia Commonwealth University will share insights from the report at a symposium on March 31, 2015, at 3:30p.m., in the University of Richmond Jepson Alumni Center. Elected and appointed officials, community leaders, and housing policy advocates will attend the event.
