The Housing Implementation Pipeline (HIP) is an internal, cross-departmental, 5-year work plan for the City organization. This work plan coordinates current and future City resources, goals, and priorities with a systems-thinking approach to housing across the full continuum from people experiencing homelessness to overall housing supply. Importantly, there are several initiatives in the HIP that will require working closely with partners to be successful. Find out more here.
