Congressman Joe Neguse to Host First-Of-Its-Kind Affordable Housing Summit

Washington D.C.— On Thursday, September 16th, Congressman Joe Neguse will host a first-of-its-kind Affordable Housing Summit. The event will feature two public listening sessions, to discuss affordable housing and homelessness across Colorado. The Summit, follows the release of his Housing Our Communities Plan earlier this summer, a legislative package of bills to cut red tape and expand opportunities and availability of affordable housing units in Colorado and across the nation. 

“Across northern Colorado and the Front Range, as our communities expand and grow, families are being priced out of the communities they love and forced to live farther away from where they work. In our mountain towns the affordable housing stock is limited, locals are being displaced and workers can’t find affordable rental properties. We are at an inflection point for affordable housing, and it’s critical that we find creative solutions that meet this moment,” said Congressman Joe Neguse, who serves as Vice Chair for Housing and Transportation on the Majority Leader’s Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity. “Our Housing Summit will allow us to hear from a wide range of voices and experts across the district as we work to solve these complex challenges and provide affordable homes and opportunities for all Coloradans.”
