HomeAffordable Housing In PBC

The Affordable Housing Issue Group has come into existence as the county declares a housing crisis their top priority, that our county's economic success, family stability, and quality of life are dependent on all residents having adequate housing. While this may be obvious, the reality is not the case at this moment in time.

Joining us is an opportunity to gain greater knowledge about housing issues and actually work with others in the community to seek new ways of providing for housing.

We work in partnership with like-minded organizations - three currently represented in our group: the Housing Leadership Council, Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County and Gulfstream Goodwill. Four of our housing group members represented our League chapter on the regional subcommittees formed by the county-wide Affordable Housing Task Force and we participate in the current Task Force work.

Finally, we are part of a renewed effort in the state legislature to protect housing-designated trust funds. We meet with legislative representatives and educate our constituency about funding issues at the local and national level. Come join us!
