Atlanta Regional Housing Forum

Housing, Aging and Health Agenda

The number of older persons in the region and indeed worldwide are at record levels and are continuing to expand.  In 2000, 1 in every 10 Atlanta regional residents was older than 60 years of age and is expected to double to 1 in 5 residents by 2030.  In the last 100 years, life expectancy has soared from the early 40s to the mid-80s.  An aging population brings unique opportunities and none are more important than having a sufficient stock of affordable, accessible housing with adequate supports to promote a quality and independent life. 

The forum will provide the opportunity to dialogue with nationally recognized experts in health care and advocacy programs for low income families, seniors, and special needs populations.  This is a chance for housing developers, policymakers and health and social services providers to explore ways that they can work together to better serve vulnerable populations.
