Jackson, TN Selected for Third Annual Housing Solutions Lab Peer Cities Network
The City of Jackson is proud to announce Jackson, Tennessee has been selected as one of the city teams for the third annual Housing Solutions Lab Peer Cities Network. Jackson was chosen from a strong pool of applicants, which included small and midsize cities from across the United States.
"I am thrilled that Jackson has been selected as a city team for the Peer Cities Network,” said Mayor Scott Conger. “This opportunity will allow us to collaborate with leaders from other cities, engage with policy experts, and share our unique perspective on local housing challenges.”
The Peer Cities Network is an eight-month opportunity that brings together leaders from cities around the country to engage with their peers, policy experts, and housing researchers to address pressing local housing challenges. The selected teams include city and county housing administrators, legislative stakeholders, and non-profit institutional partners, all of whom share a deep understanding of their local housing context and needs.
Launching in May, the focus areas for this year's Peer Cities Network cities include environmentally sustainable development, mitigating displacement, equitable access to homeownership, and comprehensive housing planning. The Lab and its partners will provide technical assistance to these cities in areas such as data analysis, community engagement, and policy implementation, while local housing officials will share insights and build connections based on their shared expertise.
