You can make your voice heard in Boise’s sessions on housing

The spike in home prices and rents across the Treasure Valley is stressing residents in most of Boise’s neighborhoods.

The City of Boise is holding several listening sessions to hear from residents about the impacts of the housing crisis on them and to collect ideas on how to address the ongoing problem with American Rescue Plan Funds or other initiatives.

City staff will take ideas and recommendations on how to invest American Rescue Plan funds to support vulnerable communities. The areas the city is looking at include housing affordability, mental health, food security, supporting small businesses and childcare. The city is also taking input on how to spend the federal relief dollars in this survey.

Two sessions are already complete, but you still have two chances to participate:
