To address the critical community-wide issue of attainable housing the University Area CDC will hold the Innovative Solutions to Attainable Housing Summit on Tuesday, April 9, from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
With support from the Commission on the Status of Women and Hillsborough County, this free event will be held at the University Area CDC at 14013 N. 22nd St. Tampa, FL 33613.
“Attainable housing is a goal of the entire community and not the responsibility of a single entity or agency,” Sarah Combs CEO of University Area CDC.
