Recap: HousingForward at VAGHC 2021

Virginia Governor’s Housing Conference

November 2021 • Norfolk Waterside Marriott

2021 Virginia Governor's Housing Conference: Home Sweet Home

In case you missed last week’s conference, here’s a quick rundown of everything we did, including recordings of our sessions.

The Treatment Plan: Leveraging New Housing Resources Post-COVID - xChats @ VAGHC

A free HousingX Event at VAGHC

How should housers take full advantage of increased post-COVID resources to make sustained, equitable improvements in housing opportunities for all Virginians? We convened several moderated discussions to drill into such topics as messaging, local and regional roles, scaling up, and cross-sector collaboration. In-person audience members joined the discussion on Wednesday the 10th, and many more watched virtually via our YouTube channel and the GHC app. Check out the recording below, and if you enjoyed the content, please take this brief post-event survey. Your answers will help secure funding for more HousingX events in the future.

Last week alone, we collected over $10,000 in donations from individuals and partner organizations for the Robert J. Adams Fund for Racially Equitable Housing. Our sincerest thanks to all those that have participated in this campaign so far. But we’re still just shy of our $25,000 goal. If you haven’t chipped in yet, please consider donating today to help pave the way for a better, stronger Virginia.
