The Alliance for Housing Solutions convenes an annual public education forum on affordable housing, named for longtime Arlington affordable housing advocate Thomas P. Leckey. These forums have provided a wealth of information—and grist for discussion—on challenges and best practices, innovations and initiatives, and research results in the field. AHS has itself sponsored research to better understand affordable housing issues.
