The Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Community Revitalization, U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development (USDA RD), and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are hosting a webinar to address housing in gateway communities.
Gateway communities lie outside or adjacent to major tourist attractions such as national parks, wilderness areas, or nature resorts. Many of these communities experience multiple housing challenges, including – a lack of affordable housing, available financing, and rapid population growth. The webinar will highlight federal resources and private sector strategies that help communities leverage their outdoor recreation and tourism venues to address housing solutions and improve economic resilience.
