Kicking off this year’s Governor’s Housing Conference, HousingForward Virginia will convene a pre-conference session on Tuesday, November 17 at 3pm. This session will bring together a virtual discussion group of affordable housing practitioners to engage in a conversation about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on a range of issues around affordable housing. We anticipate approximately 25 housing providers and advocates will participate in the dialogue with an open line for others to watch and comment.

Here’s a quick review of what HousingForward did in 2020.
In late August and early September, we worked with VPLC and Richmond City Health District to produce a series of webinars called #Lead2020: Lead-Safe Homes, Healthy Families. The goal of these events was to raise awareness about the dangers of lead contamination in homes across the Commonwealth.
On September 28th, we partnered with VCU’s Center for Urban and Regional Analysis to provide a webinar on the basics of affordable housing to over 200 planners across the state.
In March of this year, the GA passed HB 854, which mandates that DHCD and Virginia Housing carry out a study of housing policies, programs, and conditions in the Commonwealth.
