Innovation in Housing


Innovation and rapid change are transforming industries around the world. The pace of change can be so fast that it’s important to see beyond the horizon to know what’s coming. The affordable housing industry is no exception.

In 2019, HousingForward Virginia and the Virginia Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech sought to create a unique learning experience enabling participants to hear from speakers on the cutting edge of change and experience the latest innovations across the industry. Thus, HousingX was born.
