Housing

The Housing Working Group brings together professionals from regional councils to both promote and facilitate the exchange of information and support between regional council members and staff pertaining to the state of housing, better understand the root causes and issues surrounding housing, and ultimately identify potentially impactful actions which can be utilized to address the lack of diverse, equitable, and affordable housing options.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I)

NARC’s DE&I working group brings together diversity, equity and inclusion practitioners together to create a resource group designed to aid and assist all regions addressing these important issues. The group creates a safe space in which discussions related to these topics can occur without judgment. Through this forum DE&I practitioners are able to develop resources for regions working on, or considering working on diversity, equity and inclusion issues within their workforce and funding decisions, as well as the work they do and the communities they serve.

For additional information or to join this group, please contact Jessica Routzahn, NARC Program Manager at jessica@narc.org.
