Housing Solutions Lab

Helping cities plan, launch, and evaluate equitable housing policies


Pasco, WA Pasco was one of five places to participate in the 2021 Housing Solutions Workshop delivered by the Housing Solutions Lab, Abt Associates, and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. The Workshop is a month-long virtual training designed to guide interagency housing officials in developing or refining a local, comprehensive housing strategy.

Pasco is also part of the Housing Solutions Lab’s 2022 Peer Cities Network. The Network meets regularly with peers in small and midsize cities for shared learning and problem-solving and serves to support city leaders as they design policies that address pressing housing challenges while advancing racial and health equity.
