Housing affordability in the Northwest has reached a crisis point.
The impacts are felt by hard-working families who’ve done all the right things but can’t get ahead. The governments that serve them must lead the way, developing new solutions that ensure prosperity is attainable for all. But they can’t do it alone.
The Hayden Opportunity Fund supports local governments who work hand-in-hand with organizations or private business to create innovative policies or solutions that support a new wave of housing availability and affordability in their communities.
As the challenges surrounding the COVID-19 crisis continue to evolve, the safety and health of our community members, leaders and families is of the utmost importance.
We recognize there is immense strain on both the public and private sectors right now. Based on this turmoil and uncertainty, we are postponing the 2020 Hayden Opportunity Fund application submission to a future date yet to be determined. We expect, when municipal and business operations are no longer burdened by the threat of pandemic, we will be here to recognize innovation in housing affordability and availability. More than ever, we look forward to collaborating on the best ideas to move housing forward for the good of our communities.
