NoCo Housing NOW All Partnership Meeting | March 4, 2022

Mar 4, 2022 | Government & Policy, Infrastructure, NoCo Housing Now

As part of the quarterly NoCo Housing NOW series, the Chamber convened a dialogue to explore methods in which employers are assisting efforts to secure housing for its workforce. Under the heading of Employer Assisted Housing, both public and private-sector employers shared strategies for providing rental and ownership opportunities to help attract and retain employees. Recognizing significant external factors that make it extremely difficult for wages to keep pace with exponential growth in the cost of all housing types, our panel outlined methods in which employers can help secure opportunities to support both their teammates and the larger community.

The panel included Elevated, Inc., the largest franchisee for Cheba Hut Toasted Subs, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado and Pitkin County – a voice from the future of Larimer County. The panel was also joined by Canvas Credit Union and Impact Development Fund, two organizations that have developed tools to assist employers considering a role in this space.

A recording of the dialogue can be found here, along with other materials below. Please plan to join us on June 17, 2022 from 10:30-noon at our next NoCo Housing Now event!
