STAR Center | Tacoma, WA
Join us as we hear from industry experts about affordable housing development and the barriers they face on the ground, challenges with financing, and how you can help promote affordable housing development across Pierce County.
On January 27, 2023, the Affordable Housing Consortium of Tacoma-Pierce County held a public forum, “Overcoming Barriers to Developing Affordable Housing in Pierce County” in Tacoma, WA. There were over 150 registrants, 20 panelists, 4 panels, and 2 networking sessions.
The event brought together municipalities, developers, funders, stakeholders, and advocates to discuss the current state of affordable housing in Pierce County, explore challenges that developers are facing in the field, and discuss strategies for overcoming barriers in order to increase and preserve affordable housing across Pierce County. The feeling of the event was high-energy and attendees were invested in the panelist conversations.
“I learned so much! I attended to get a broad overview of what is going on related to Affordable Housing in Pierce County and I was not disappointed. What really sticks out 4 days later is an appreciation for how complex the process is to go from "dirt to doorknobs" and the variety of funding sources used to develop affordable housing.” - Event Attendee
