Ensuring that all people have a range of safe and affordable housing choices is essential to creating a healthy and prosperous future for the region.

The region is expected to grow by 830,000 households by the year 2050. Meeting the housing needs of all households at a range of income levels is integral to creating a region that is livable for all residents, economically prosperous and environmentally sustainable.

By providing data, guidance, and technical assistance, PSRC supports jurisdictions in their efforts to adopt best housing practices and establish coordinated local housing and affordable housing targets.

 

Regional Housing Strategy

PSRC is beginning work to develop a regional housing strategy, including a regional housing needs assessment.

The Regional Housing Strategy is intended to serve as a “playbook” of regional and local actions to preserve, improve, and expand housing stock in the region. The aim is to make a range of affordable, accessible, healthy, and safe housing choices available to every resident and to promote fair and equal access to housing for all people. The Regional Housing Strategy will help guide and support upcoming local comprehensive plan updates.
