Affordable Housing Initiatives

Chambers are needed to help meet the challenges of housing affordability for workers and retirees. Affordable housing is critical to workers' quality of life, as well as to the ability of employers to expand and grow, and to a community's ability to attract new businesses. When employees are able to live close to their place of work, families, employers, local businesses (in the form of revenues from the local workforce), and cities and towns (by experiencing reduced traffic and a more cohesive community) all benefit.
