** Housing & Homelessness Town Hall Series

Join us on Facebook Live for this four-part series where state legislative candidates will discuss their perspectives and policy goals on the suite of issues pertaining to housing in Anchorage.

The Anchorage Home Builder’s Association (AHBA) and the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) will partner with the Seawolf Speech and Debate Program, and Anchorage Daily News to host four live-streamed candidate town hall discussions for upcoming state elections. These events were made possible with support from Rasmuson Foundation.

This is intended to be a neutral platform for candidates to discuss their perspectives and policy goals on the suite of issues pertaining to housing and homelessness in Anchorage. This opportunity provides a forum to share information with the community on the systemic challenges to residential development, housing affordability, and addressing homelessness.

The need for this platform has been emphatically endorsed by both private builders as well as non-profit, affordable housing and other service providers: namely the cost/difficulty erecting four walls within the Municipality is a major (but poorly understood/appreciated) barrier to improving the quality and affordability of our housing stock. This is true throughout the entirety of the price spectrum and has a direct impact on the building industry, cost and availability of local labor, and access to affordable housing. Simultaneously, there is a public outcry to address impacts of homelessness in our community that struggles to meaningfully engage with homelessness’ root causes.

These Town Hall discussions are not intended as a means for AHBA or ACEH to vet candidates for support, or for candidates to compete for our approval. Our organizations/industry have distinct but frequently overlapping interests in these topics, and agree they are of critical importance to voters and the future of our community. Our goal is to provide candidates for State office with a platform to engage prospective voters on issues of great importance and concern to members of our community regardless of their political inclinations.
