Here We Grow
Building workforce housing the region needs
Over 41,000 workers in our region can't afford to live on their own, even when they earn at the 90th percentile for their occupation. We're collaborating with others in the region to address the need for workforce housing solutions.
Redlining in Des Moines
Exploring lasting consequences of housing discrimination
Explore the history of redlining and systemic racism in housing with the Polk County Housing Trust Fund's new 5-part video series. Understanding the past allows us to make better decisions for the future.
This is still an unsettled time for our community's progress on housing. The pandemic emergency is receding, but economic hardship remains. We're working harder than ever to help the community secure needed progress.
