Like most of America, Loudoun County is facing a crisis of housing affordability. This crisis is hurting not only homebuyers, but our economy, our workforce, our environment and the very social fabric of our community, where many of our workers cannot afford to live.
The White House and the US Chamber of Commerce have launched a campaign to tackle this issue by advocating to reform exclusionary zoning laws, address supply and labor shortages, and improve financing for projects that target low- and middle-income homebuyers.
On Thursday, August 4th, the Loudoun Chamber and the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties will present the 2022 Loudoun Workforce Housing Summit to bring state and local housing experts and employers together to examine ways that private and public sector partners in Loudoun and the Commonwealth can work together to address this crisis.
The 2022 Loudoun Workforce Housing Summit will feature a Keynote Address from Bryan W. Horn, the Director of Virginia’s Department of Housing and Community Development, the state agency dedicated to creating safe, affordable, and prosperous communities to live, work and do business in Virginia.

- John Lynn Payne, Northern Virginia Strategic Officer, Virginia Housing
- Carmen Romero, President and CEO, Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing
