Allamakee County

Allamakee County Housing Study

As Allamakee County seeks to support its businesses and attract and retain the needed workforce, ensuring adequate, decent and affordable housing is a vital strategy.  In 2023, Upper Explorerland is assisting the county with an update to its countywide housing assessment to understand current housing issues and opportunities.  The assessment will analyze current housing conditions and household characteristics, forecast future housing gaps, and discuss the county’s greatest housing needs.  The process will also help identify housing priorities for each community moving forward. 



City Housing Meetings

City housing meetings to engage stakeholders locally will occur in November and December 2023.  Stay tuned for specific dates (to be set by October 2023).


A Glance at the Housing Data

Data on community and housing characteristics, housing stock, housing affordability, and more will be provided here in the course of the coming months.
