Economic Impact

While Highlands Housing Corporation’s work helps our customers enjoy greater economic freedom through housing that has a low life-cycle cost, it is mindful of local economic impacts as well.

For every $52,000 spent on home building, one person in the production supply chain is employed.

Every new home built by Highlands Housing creates or sustains approximately 2 new jobs per year.

The more people who are employed earning a decent living, the better the housing market becomes.

"If not for Highlands Housing, affordable, energy efficient housing would be non-existent. It just wouldn’t be available for so many families needing good, quality housing.”
