What will the Housing work group do?
Meeting future housing needs for all citizens by promoting fair housing practices in response to the Livability Principle, Promote Equitable, Affordable Housing will be the primary goal of this Work Group. The element will address the areas of segregated patterns, affordability and choice, given the increasing number of manufactured homes. This is accomplished by coordinating 5‐year consolidated plans for CDBG entitlement communities, drafting outlines for local housing plans, aligning funding streams with housing needs and priorities, and emphasizing the needs to coordinate housing, employment and transportation choices. Building on the recently completed Regional Transit Development Plan that considered both the urban and rural needs, the RPSD will more specifically address the jobs/housing/access to transit relationships. In this capacity, the element addresses the Program Outcomes of decreasing the overall combined housing and transportation cost per household and reduced social and economic disparities.
