WEBINAR- Housing Needs Assessments
December 9 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Planners and housing providers must create the framework for housing programs that are based on documented community need. This requires the preparation of a Housing Needs Assessment. This webinar explains mapping local housing needs that can generate the programs and solutions required to meet the specific housing needs in the community. Data sources for conducting a needs assessment are explored, along with the tools for researching and interpreting what the numbers mean for program design. Needs assessments are not simply a data exercise; community engagement must be included in the process. Methodologies for community participation are discussed with guidance on inclusion and verified observation of housing condition, hazard risks, undervalued neighborhoods with heirs’ title problems, and pending
changes in land use and other public activities such as capital infrastructure projects, neighborhood revitalization or redevelopment initiatives.
