Housing is a foundational element to community prosperity, contributing to health, economic mobility, safety, and resilience.  Sometimes the conversation around housing can be limited to finances, but engaging with the community to reframe the conversation to one about community property can gather support for housing projects. In this session, three former housing task force members will discuss how counties engage with the community and how counties foster collaborations with organizations and neighboring counties.
