Update - Ohio Affordable Housing Forum and the Impacts from the Growth of Drilling

By Debra Mayes

January 28, 2013

The following was provided by Tom Leach of the Columbus HUD Office as a result of HUD’s Ohio Affordable Housing Forums.  The links below include useful insights on the impacts of drilling from the national, regional, and Ohio perspectives.  During their last two forums, they discussed how we can learn from the experiences of other states and regions.  Included are some links which are specific to areas outside of Ohio that are relevant. 

Looking ahead, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (Dr. Holly Holtzen, Director of Research and Strategic Planning who presented at last week’s OCCD Winter Quarterly) is leading a detailed impact study which should be very helpful in better understanding this issue and available in March.
