Taos Invests in Research to Identify Ways to Create More Affordable Housing
A $10,000 grant to Taos Community Foundation on September 24, 2021
Due in part to the proliferation of vacation and rental properties in Taos—40 percent of homes are not occupied year-round—housing is both limited and expensive, often out of reach for local and multigenerational families. At a 2021 webinar about housing, the county and other stakeholders agreed that Taos needed a unified approach to understand housing needs and to identify actions that can be taken to address this persistent problem. The Taos County Manager reached out to LOR with a potential solution: hire a subject matter expert to conduct an environmental scan of housing needs, identify themes, and recommend framework for an investment strategy for Taos County. LOR’s funding supported this work.
