Mission: The mission of the Dallas Fort Worth Regional Housing Consortium is to work across the North Texas region to promote an inclusive economy with access to housing for everyone through policy, research, education and advocacy.
Purpose: The DFW Regional Housing Consortium brings together a broad group of community stakeholders across the region to address key issues around affordable housing, including:
Affordable housing stock for working families is in short supply, including both multi- and single-family units
Local and regional housing policies do not exist, or are not connected and collaborative
Funding for development, down payment assistance, and other resources to expand affordable housing needs to be increased.
Limited access to lots and land
Displacement and segregation barriers
