The Bloomington Housing Action Team is a collaboration of housing advocates, owners or managers of rental properties, renters, HRA Board members, City Council members, advisory boards and commissions members, City staff and community stakeholders. The group meets regularly to discuss how to create, preserve and access affordable housing in Bloomington.
BHAT is designed as a coalition that will evolve to frame and steer our strategic focus as we collectively work to assist to preserve the affordability and vitality of communities in the City of Bloomington. Our intention is to mitigate market disruptions with adverse impacts on existing residents and work with a diverse range of strong partners to ensure that current residents, no matter where they work, have a stable, affordable place to call home.
The BHAT works to identify strategies to support housing opportunities for residents at all income levels. These strategies are intended to increase housing to better meet the diverse needs of Bloomington residents and reduce barriers and displacement.
