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
The Regional Housing Strategy is 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 Executive Board adopted the Regional Housing Strategy in February 2022. PSRC, cities, counties, and other stakeholders are now working to implement the strategy, with a focus on providing resources and support for the 2024 local comprehensive plan update.
