On January 29, 2016, Pensacola Housing staff member Dawn Corrigan made a presentation on Affordable Housing in Escambia County to employees of the Escambia County Department of Health as part of their training and employee development program. The session was well attended, and a lively question and answer session on affordable housing opportunities and challenges followed. Topics covered included rental market statistics for Escambia County, an overview of federal housing programs, a description of the affordable housing options available locally, and a detailed explanation of the Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Local businesses and organizations interested in scheduling a training session on affordable housing for their employees or clients are invited to contact the Pensacola Housing Office at (850) 858-0350.
