 Five Ways Housing Affordability Affects Local Businesses

Like bridges and roads, affordable housing is an investment in a community’s infrastructure. Along with numerous social benefits, housing affordability supports diverse jobs and wage levels and also attracts and retains workers – critical to a community’s long-term economic success.

Mixed-Income Housing: Like It, but It's Complicated


This special event, presented by AHS in cooperation with Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization (CPRO), took place during Affordable Housing Month, September 2015, at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse. (Link to the flyer).

Michelle Winters (Winters Community Strategies) moderated a panel that included Paul Browne, Wesley Housing Development Corporation and John Welsh, AHC, Inc. (each of whom presented a case study on a mixed-income development) and Edmund Delany, Capital One Bank, and Steve Cover, Arlington County, who provided banking and local policy perspectives.
