Invest in your Community
The Housing Leadership Council of Tallahassee-Leon County (HLC) serves as a catalyst for education, collaboration, and intentional development to ensure that everyone in our community has access to safe, stable, affordable, low-cost housing. With 43% of our community housing cost-burdened, we can no longer ignore the reality that the lack of availability and access to housing is an economic challenge which must be addressed. This impacts our community at every socio-economic level. Collaborative solutions for innovative tools and project models will be essential in creating a Tallahassee that welcomes residents from all walks of life to thrive.
The HLC is uniquely positioned to be the lead convener on all issues related to housing bringing together the public, private, and social sectors to create real solutions. This will be accomplished through three primary avenues:
- EDUCATEShare housing realities, resources, and proven best practice models to establish a strong housing ecosystem
- COLLABORATEEstablish a cadre of housing champions from all sectors to lead, innovate, and invest in a strategic community-wide housing approach
- CREATEIncubate initiatives, projects, and policies with the objective of increasing the inventory of low-cost housing
