Advisory Councils Discuss Housing Opportunities

The Northern Virginia Advisory Council met in
Alexandria's City Hall.
Affordable housing in Virginia looks different in every region and for every community. To ensure a
holistic perspective, VHDA relies on our Advisory Boards and Councils to provide guidance on our programs and services. Members offer insight into industry challenges so that VHDA can continue to make a positive impact on the diverse affordable housing needs across the state.  

This summer we convened two Advisory Council meetings. VHDA’s Northern Virginia Advisory Council met on June 19, 2017 to discuss housing issues related to the Northern Virginia area. The cross-section of government, nonprofit, developer, lender and Realtor partners made for rich conversation. Later in the meeting, we divided into groups to discuss Rental and Homeownership topics and dive deeper into the nuances of the Northern Virginia market. Alexandria City Hall was the backdrop of this productive dialogue, highlighting the vibrancy of King Street. VHDA would like to thank the City of Alexandria for hosting the event!

On July 12, VHDA hosted the first summer meeting of our Supportive Housing Solutions Council at the Virginia Housing Center in Glen Allen. This council provides guidance and expertise in housing policy areas related to senior adults, homelessness and individuals living with disabilities. One of the main topics of discussion was aging in place.

We look forward to seeing both groups again at our Annual Holiday Luncheon this winter.
