"Bring Workers Home" is the title of this years' National Forum on Workforce Housing sponsored by the National Association of Realtors. This forum is geared toward housing and community development leaders, government representatives, housing coalitions, real estate professionals, planners, lenders and developers. Day one of the event will explore the importance of workforce housing in current and future markets, the challenges affecting working families, potential solutions for these families and various neighborhood stabilization strategies. Day two will focus on employer-assisted housing and how REALTORS®, nonprofits, government entities and lenders can all help employees find affordable homes that are close to work. The discussion will include EAH benefits that employers can offer such as home buyer education, counseling and financial assistance.
