High-cost Cities Housing Forum


The High-cost Cities Housing Forum, convened by Enterprise Community Partners, is a peer-to-peer group comprised of local housing commissioners from nine of the most expensive cities in the country. The forum was created more than a decade ago as a venue for local policymakers to discuss housing policy, offer program ideas and exchange best practices. Current member cities include Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, DC.
