A new report developed by a diverse group of housing stakeholders aims to inspire local innovation and supercharge efforts to reduce the nation’s housing supply gap. The Housing Supply Accelerator Playbook, created for elected officials and community planners, is a comprehensive set of solutions based on insights from housing groups to boost a diverse, attainable and equitable housing supply.

NAHB and the Home Builders Institute worked closely with the American Planning Association (APA) and the National League of Cities (NLC), the lead report authors, to develop solutions to the challenging issues affecting housing affordability and attainability. In addition to builders, report authors also consulted with National Association of Realtors and Mortgage Bankers Association to provide report recommendations. As a result, the playbook reflects a whole-housing industry approach to addressing housing challenges at the local level.

The playbook is divided into two core sections of information:  A Path Forward to Addressing Housing Supply Challenges and Accelerating Housing Supply in Your Community. In the “A Path Forward to Addressing Housing Supply Challenges” chapter, the contents are broken up into three sections:

  • Current Housing Supply Challenges,
  • Systems Approach to Addressing Housing Supply Challenges, and
  • How to Use the Playbook.

In the “Accelerating Housing Supply in Your Community” chapter, the contents are broken up into four sections:

  • Collaboration and Partnership,
  • Construction and Development,
  • Finance, and
  • Land Use and Regulation.

NAHB will be distributing the Housing Supply Accelerator broadly and encourages members to as well. This playbook is a resource builders can reference to show the housing supply ecosystem is aligned in a strategy to close the housing supply gap through solutions that expand, preserve, and improve local housing supply.
