About the Loudoun Workforce Housing Summit

You’re cordially invited to the 2022 Loudoun Workforce Housing Summit, presented in partnership by the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce and the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. We invite and encourage our fundholders, donors, and grantees as well as local nonprofit, government, business, and philanthropic leaders to join us for this important conversation.

Each year the Community Foundation convenes local leaders for our annual Philanthropy Summit. This year, the Community Foundation and Loudoun Chamber of Commerce are working together to co-present the 2022 Loudoun Workforce Housing Summit. This summit will bring together state and local housing experts and employers to examine the ways that private and public sector partners in Loudoun and the Commonwealth can work together to address Loudoun’s workforce housing crisis.

Loudoun County, just like most of America, is facing a crisis of housing affordability. This crisis does not just negatively impact homebuyers. It hurts our economy, our workforce, our environment and the very social fabric of our community, where many of our workers cannot afford to live.

Nationally, the White House and the US Chamber of Commerce have launched a campaign to tackle this issue by advocating to reform exclusionary zoning laws, address supply and labor shortages, and improve financing for projects targeting low- and middle-income homebuyers. Locally, the Community Foundation launched Workforce Housing Now, a community awareness campaign focused on addressing the workforce housing shortage in Loudoun.
