HUD Releases New Research on Increasing Affordable Housing
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released new research on innovative strategies that state and local governments are using to bring down the barriers to and increase the supply of affordable housing.
“The new research, published by HUD’s Office of Policy Development & Research (PD&R), was promised as part of the Department’s September 1 announcement of a series of actions it is taking as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s plan to create, preserve, and sell nearly 100,000 additional affordable homes for homeowners and renters across the country over the next three years. As stated in that announcement, the lessons from the research 'will be incorporated into HUD’s Regulatory Barriers Clearinghouse, which contains over 4,800 barriers and solutions and provides a catalog of information that spans all 50 states and over 460 cities and counties. They will also inform the locally driven zoning reform initiative in the President’s Build Back Better Plan.'”
