Save the Date

Housing professionals, developers, advocates, and others interested in Fairfax County’s affordable housing industry are invited to join the Fairfax County Housing Symposium, taking place on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, at George Mason University in Fairfax.

The day-long event will feature elected leaders, industry professionals, policy experts, affordable housing users, and others who are working toward a common goal of a Fairfax County everyone can afford to call home.

Attendees will participate in discussions about affordable housing development and preservation challenges; the ‘lived experiences’ of affordable housing; the direct line between homelessness and housing; and other Fairfax County housing topics. They will also enjoy a brief tour of One University, Fairfax County’s new premiere affordable housing community located next to George Mason University. The new community, scheduled to be completed this Spring, will feature affordable independent living senior homes and multifamily apartments as well as student housing.

Past Housing Symposium presenters and discussion leaders have included:

  • Congressman Gerald Connolly, U.S. House of Representatives

  • Jeffrey Little, General Deputy Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

  • Jeffrey McKay, Chairman, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors
