This report illustrates how local governments can realize the full benefits of inclusionary housing policies, which require developers of new market-rate real estate to provide some affordable units for lower-income residents. Policy makers, practitioners, and local leaders will learn how to build public support, use data to inform program design, establish reasonable expectations for developers, and ensure long-term program quality.
“This guide gives practical information to housing advocates and policy makers about the economic impacts and the nuts and bolts of designing an equitable inclusionary housing policy.” Next City
