Regional Market-Rate Housing Study
News • Published: August 18, 2022

The quality of a region’s housing and its ability to be economically competitive—to attract and retain the skilled workers that businesses and institutions need to thrive—are closely connected issues. Until recently, they were rarely viewed this way, and housing is still not part of the formal economic development toolkits in most parts of the country. But in the five counties that participate in the I-68 Regional Alliance, momentum is building to formalize this crucial connection.

This Housing Study was produced for the I-68 Regional Alliance by czbLLC and made possible by generous support from the following:
Allegany County, Maryland
Bedford County, Pennsylvania
Garrett County, Maryland
Mineral County, West Virginia
Somerset County, Pennsylvania

Rural Maryland Council
Frostburg State University
Garrett Community Action Committee
The Greater Cumberland Committee
