Lowcountry Affordable Housing Symposium Wrap Up

December 15, 2023
Regional housing advocates, policy makers, and organizations committed to increasing the availability of affordable workforce housing met on Nov. 13 at the Port Royal Sound Foundation Maritime Center for the Lowcountry Affordable Housing Symposium.

The symposium’s agenda included presentations and discussions on the current state of affordable housing in the Lowcountry. We had a full house for the event, which was coordinated by the recently formed Lowcountry Affordable Housing Partners Group. The group consists of regional municipal housing representatives, area chambers of commerce, philanthropic organizations, and housing nonprofits.

Featured speakers included Senator Tom Davis, SC District 46; Dr. Joey Von Nessen, USC Darla Moore School of Business; Lee Ann Watson, General Counsel of South Carolina Housing; and panels of both commercial and nonprofit housing developers.

Affordable housing is the number one issue facing Lowcountry residents, businesses, organizations, and employers.
