Eielson Housing Shortage

Fairbanks Economic Development Corporation is hosting a series of Housing Summits to address the future housing needs due to the projected and expected increase of personnel at Eielson Air Force Base from the addition of two squadrons of F-35s.


These Summits are intended to provide interested parties with much of the initial information on expected housing requirements, preferred housing locations, challenges, and any resources to overcome those obstacles. Our goal is to provide you with the information you’ll need to make educated decisions regarding your involvement in this exciting economic opportunity.


The most recent Housing Summit was Tuesday, June 6 from 2 - 5 pm at the Pipeline Training Center in Fairbanks. Please click here for slides from the Eielson Air Force Base upate. You can click here for slides related to the Eielson Air Force Base Growth Management Plan that's being conducted for the Fairbanks North Star Borough.
