Convening The Community (CTC)
This event covers affordable housing, which is a core component of the ninth CTC economic imperative.
9. Strengthen the middle class.
National income growth of top and bottom quintiles outpaced the middle classes by more than double. Middle-class Arizonans feel the impacts of weak income growth and a rapidly changing economy driven by technology and innovation. The region’s resilience is tied to the strengths of its middle class. A resilient future is achievable when more disadvantaged Arizonans move into the middle-income tier through stable careers with job security, benefits, continuing education and professional growth. And through access to affordable housing, family-sustaining wages and the opportunity to build intergenerational wealth.
