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). There will also be a focus in workforce participation by minorities, women, and disabled veterans. The guiding principles of the LIS are as follows:

  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
