“Home building and remodeling generates income and jobs for local residents, as well as revenue for local governments,” says HBA CEO Matt Morrow. “In general, we know the estimated impact of building 100 single-family housing units is $21.1 million in local income, $2.2 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments, and 324 local jobs. Right now, that job impact is critically important to ascertain for our community leaders as they try to move us toward recovery. We’ve commissioned Eisenberg to help us understand these economic impacts for our 5-county area.”
