Housing Advisory Board

Overview

In 2015, Philadelphia’s voters created the Housing Advisory Board. The board includes members of the housing, real estate, and lending industries. It also includes relevant government agencies.

The board suggests ways to maintain and increase the supply of housing for all income levels. The board also reviews and provides advice on the Department of Planning and Development’s strategic housing plans.
