Communitywide Housing Strategic Plan
Meeting a Success!

On July 13, a Communitywide Housing Strategic Plan meeting was held at the Mason District Government Center.  Supervisor Gross kicked off the meeting by highlighting the importance of affordable housing in Fairfax County. Vincent Rogers, Director of the FCRHA Policy, Reporting, and Communications Division at the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), immediately followed Supervisor Gross with a presentation about the need and challenge of affordable housing in Fairfax County.

To date, a number of community meetings have been held throughout the county to garner input. These meetings have been hugely successful with participation from local residents and non-profits; all providing insightful feedback on how the community should invest in housing that is affordable.

The State of the Nation’s Housing Report

The State of the Nation’s Housing report, released on June 16, 2017 by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, provides a periodic assessment of the nation’s housing outlook and summarizes important trends in the economics and demographics of housing.

This year’s report states that a decade after the onset of the Great Recession, the national housing market has, by many measures, returned to normal, according to the report. Housing demand, home prices, and construction volumes are all on the rise, and the number of distressed homeowners has fallen sharply. However, along with strengthening demand, extremely tight supplies of both for-sale and for-rent homes are pushing up housing costs and adding to ongoing concerns about affordability. The report also states that nearly 19 million US households paid more than half of their incomes for housing.
