Governor's Housing Summit, January 6, 2015

Governor Bill Walker will hold a Housing Summit on January 6, 2015 at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The purpose of the event is for industry experts in the housing industry to address housing and homeless concerns that impact all communities in the state.

For the event, the Coalition has provided data and information on homelessness and the housing inventory currently available to address these issues in our communities. The Coalition has also provided a set of talking points with recommendations on addressing the full spectrum of housing needs -- from emergency shelter beds to fair market housing -- and to build a more dynamic housing system in the state.
