Quality and cost appropriate housing is critical community infrastructure that can raise residents’ standard of living and strengthen the economy by supporting the people living and working in our region. Pathfinders sees an opportunity to strengthen local communities by allowing people to live where they work, which in turn benefits employers growing their businesses, schools seeking to stabilize enrollment, and cities envisioning a vibrant future.

We understand aging infrastructure and a lack of new housing in our communities has left a gap between what’s available and what is needed. We aim to support communities in solving their housing challenges starting with a regional housing conference on May 21st, 2019 co-organized by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and University of Iowa.
