The Anchorage Housing Survey was intended for Anchorage residents to share their experiences with housing issues and how they engage in their neighborhoods. This survey sought feedback from the public on housing policies in Anchorage and on the potential opportunities to meet our housing needs.
The effort is in partnership with the Municipality of Anchorage’s Planning Department, as well as additional stakeholders including NeighborWorks Alaska (NWAK). Lindsey Hajduk in an Anchorage resident who works for NWAK and is currently undergoing a remote graduate program at the University of New Hampshire.
