About the Regional Housing Partnership

The Regional Housing Partnership (RHP) serves as an official advisory board, created by the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission, in partnership with the public, private, nonprofit, and citizen stakeholders.  Composed of an overarching consortium of housing interests, the Partnership enhances regional coordination and effectiveness to address the housing needs of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District’s region, with a focus on housing production, diversity, accessibility, cost, location, design, and increasing stability for the region’s residents.

The Central Virginia Affordable Housing Locator, established in November 2020, is a free resource to help connect people with affordable rentals or homes for sale in Planning District 10, Virginia. People can search through hundreds of listings and find area resources to assist them, through all stages of their home search. Property owners may list affordable homes on this website free of charge.

OBJECTIVES

The primary objectives of the RHP are to address unmet housing needs and preserve housing affordability.

The Partnership will utilize the regional housing needs assessment report to identify and support strategies to bring about the alignment of policy, funding and programming in order to create a full housing ladder of opportunity in the region.

The challenge in the area is both quantitative, as defined by a gap between the number of affordable units and the need and qualitative, as defined by the lack of options for housing mobility, equity gain, transportation issues and workforce development, etc.

Members of the partnership believe that we can and must adopt an ambitious regional goal, within a specific timeframe, for aligning supply and demand. Housing is fundamental for our region to remain healthy and strong.
