Atlanta Regional Housing Forum Survey
You are one of the roughly 1,000 participants during 2020 that have helped elevate the important role of the Atlanta Regional Housing Forum in educating and advocating around the complex of issues related to affordable housing. As we want to strengthen that vital role, we ask for your feedback on one question: What should our priorities be in 2021?
Given the interrelated and encompassing nature of "affordable housing", even categorizing and ranking a wide range of potential topics is difficult. Please rank, from 1 as highest to 10 lowest, this list of ten potential topics. If you wish, add your own in the space provided. We want to hear from you!
