Workforce Housing Forum Guide

An important role that REALTOR® associations can play in addressing workforce housing issues in their community is to hold a forum to bring together key players in the community to examine how the lack of affordable housing opportunities is affecting the community and to explore strategies to address these issues.

The Workforce Housing Forum Guide: A Strategy for Outreach and Advocacy outlines how to plan and conduct a workforce housing forum to identify and develop strategies to address a community’s workforce housing needs. The guide includes tips and tools for setting goals, identifying partners, selecting speakers, managing resources, handling logistics, etc., along with examples of successful forums conducted by REALTOR® associations.

You can download the entire Guide to print and review. You can also print out individual tools and resources for staff and committee members to discuss and then customize.
