HRHA is collaborating with the JMU School of Professional and Continuing Education, the City of Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, and other local stakeholders to host a community housing summit on October 30. Our housing challenges and opportunities require collaboration from across our community. This includes housing partners, faith groups, government officials, non-profits, social service agencies, academic institutions, developers, and residents.
The summit will be in a hybrid format and will allow experts and community participants to participate virtually and in-person. The community is welcome to join this important dialogue on how to improve our community’s local housing conditions through addressing policies, equity and housing solutions. Summit is free and lunch is provided.
