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.
We interviewed Pasco’s Planning Manager Jacob Gonzalez about the experience of participating in the Housing Solutions Workshop on Lab Notes.
Our Housing Needs Assessment Tool shows Pasco’s share of severely crowded households dropped by nearly half between 2015 and 2020, though it remains higher than the national average.
