Housing Virginia’s Rural Housing Report: Moves to Next Step

(RECAP: For the past year, Housing Virginia has been conducting an assessment of the needs and gaps in affordable housing in rural Virginia. Launched with a pre-conference session at the 2015 Governor’s Housing Conference, this initiative involved online surveys, regional face-to-face input meetings with housing providers around the state, and an analysis of Census data in each region. Housing Virginia convened over 50 rural housing and service providers for a final input session at this year’s Governor’s Housing Conference. These policy recommendations, as well as a library of best practices and resources, will go into the final report.)
