Local Implementation Strategy - Community Engagement

<coming soon>

Local Implementation Strategy

Washington County is committed to leading with racial equity and community engagement throughout this process. In addition, there is a large commitment to adding units for families (407 units) and extremely low income households (334 units). We will also  focus in workforce participation by minorities, women, and disabled veterans. The guiding principles of the LIS are:

  1. Housing Development plan including criteria and selection process for projects
  2. Strategy for advancing racial equity throughout implementation
  3. Engagement reports summarizing how stakeholder input shaped development of the strategy
  4. Plan for ongoing community engagement

The final version of Washington County's Local Implementation Strategy, approved by the Board of County Commissioners on December 17, 2019, is available here.
