There is no easy solution to the housing affordability challenge, and neither the public nor the private sector can solve it alone — they must join hands. Partnerships can involve many different players — including land trusts, housing authorities, and even employers — to win community support; assemble land, infrastructure, and financing streams; and provide ongoing social support services that create benefits and long-term successes for everyone involved.
