Issue Identification

It is important to identify all issues in the housing sytem that surface as a result of the analysis in the housing needs assessment. The Service Manager will not be able to address many of these issues, but a comprehensive statement of needs will allow partners and agencies in other sectors to become more involved and possible begin problem solving in new and innovative ways.

Some of the key areas that should be addressed are:

  • levels of affordability
  • availabilty of appropriate housing for people with all types of resource needs
  • condition of the housing stock
