In 2019 the City of Dayton convened a group of housing advocates as part of a Bloomberg/Harvard initiative to address housing initiatives in Dayton. What formed from that group was the Dayton Housing Roundtable. The vision outlined by the group was to ensure that all current and future Daytonians have access to safe, healthy, and affordable housing in quality neighborhoods through actionable policy. Since that time Dayton residents, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and city staff have engaged in a thorough process to identify relevant, actionable, and prioritized policies to bring before the Dayton City Commission. The goal of these policies are to provide data and guidance to the City, make recommendations for housing investments, outline an advocacy agenda for City leaders, and discuss new opportunities for partnerships to solve problems outside of government control.
Provided below is the Dayton Housing Policy along with supporting documents, presentations, and reports. In August of 2023 a work session was held with the Dayton City Commission to present the Dayton Housing Policy. The recording of that meeting is embedded below. This page will be updated with related documents and information pertaining to the housing policy.
