Nebraska is at a crossroads. Our state's competitiveness and economic future hinge on solving the housing crisis. Failure to act on this crisis will result in shrinking and fragmented neighborhoods, diminishing community vitality, stagnant and declining economies, and worse outcomes for peoples' health and education.

In short, if we do nothing, Nebraska and Nebraskans will lose out.

The Strategic Housing Council, with support from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Wellstone Collaborative Strategies, Queen City Development, and NIFA Board and staff, developed Nebraska's 2022 Strategic Housing Framework to outline the way forward.
