DonorConnect is a conversation series designed to bring our community together to learn about and discuss our region’s most pressing issues and promising opportunities.  

Workforce housing that meets demand, aligns with employment needs and is conveniently located near jobs and transportation is key to ensuring accessible housing options in our communities. Join us for a conversation with community partners about how workforce housing initiatives are essential to building thriving neighborhoods and competitive communities.

Currently, the supply of workforce housing has lagged behind regional population and job growth, which has resulted in a higher cost of living in the fastest-growing job centers in the metro. We will explore how prioritizing workforce housing will ensure existing residents continue to live in the communities they love, while welcoming new residents to these growing neighborhoods throughout the Central Iowa region.
