Overcoming NIMBY 3.0

Immediately preceding the Governors Housing Conference, HousingForward Virginia hosted a sold out session of its latest Overcoming NIMBY training. This training dove into the latest research and best practices around the country in helping communities to understand the benefits of affordable housing and to overcome misconceptions, fears and opposition to new housing developments. Attendees heard from voices around the State with direct experience in moving public opinion and robust discussions regarding the causes and solutions to NIMBYism were had. Stayed tuned for a 2020 round of trainings on this important topic.
