Exploring How Affordable Housing Drives Sustainability for People and Places
Affordable housing is the starting point for building sustainable communities that are poised to provide for residents now and into the future. It impacts the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of places, and is critical in building individual resiliency. The 2017 PAHRC Report Forum will bring together a group of experts in community development to discuss the evidence and provide suggestions for making communities more sustainable with a focus on lifting families out of poverty.
The PAHRC Report Forum is an annual event that brings together affordable housing and community development stakeholders, including low-income residents, to discuss the need for and the impact of affordable housing on individuals and communities. This event is coordinated with the release of the annual PAHRC Report, which is the only annual publication providing current data on the need for affordable housing, trends in families receiving publicly supported housing, and trends in the inventory of publicly supported housing.
