Regional Housing Strategy

The Regional Housing Strategy envisions a future where growth and recovery help realize more equity among Central Ohioans, not less.

Housing – where it is built or maintained, who it is for, and how it is priced – can be a platform to achieve this vision.

The Regional Housing Strategy:
  • Builds upon previous studies to provide a comprehensive view of today’s housing market.
  • Identifies five core housing issues being experienced across Central Ohio.
  • Recommends investment priorities for the region’s public and not-for-profit housing resources, regulatory strategies, and opportunities for new programs to address core housing issues and achieve the greatest impact on housing supply and affordability in our region.
  • Establishes regional metrics to monitor the performance of the housing market in meeting the needs of our residents.
