Take a Minute to Advocate for Affordable Housing

Tell your legislator today why affordable housing is important to you and your organization! Attending a forum is a great way to stay connected with your legislator and with many forums being held virtually, it’s even more convenient.

A couple of talking points in support of affordable housing:

  • Iowa’s business leaders and economic development officials across the state identify Iowa’s lack of affordable housing as a barrier to economic success.
  • Economic forecasts show that Iowa needs 47,000 housing units by 2030.
  • Affordable housing is key to expanding economic growth for Iowa.

Please remember to always keep public health and COVID-19 safety in mind. Here is a list of upcoming forums:
