Mission Statement

As the Housing Savannah Task Force began its work in August 2020, it established a Mission Statement and overall Goal to help guide its work. 

Mission Statement: The Housing Savannah Task Force is to assess local housing needs and opportunities and develop a comprehensive plan to improve housing availability, access, and affordability for all who choose to make Savannah their home. 

Goal: Develop a comprehensive action plan that 1) identifies the public, private, and philanthropic resources and systems necessary to improve, construct, and retain at least 15,000 dwellings that are in good condition, affordable, and available for occupancy by Savannahians earning up to 80% of the area’s median income, regardless of household size or life circumstance, by 2032 and 2) sustains the 2032 rate of activity each year thereafter.
