Planning for greater housing affordability is an important first step. Communities can enhance affordability with a comprehensive planning and development framework. The best plans incorporate job growth as well as housing needs and supply to inform zoning decisions.

  • Prepare a truly comprehensive plan that includes housing needs
  • Encourage mixed-use/mixed-income development
  • Encourage adaptive reuse, infill and redevelopment
  • Innovative infrastructure financing tools
  • State-level programs and remedies
