This Resource at a Glance
- Long-term housing solutions must be tailored to each community’s history and development context.
- The impacts of inequality and segregation weigh heavily in neighborhoods in every corner of the country.
Community leaders and policymakers can start with local dynamics—their community’s housing situation and the outcomes they want to achieve—and determine which policy tools best suit their needs.
This 28-page toolkit features policy tools for a variety of community situations. It highlights solutions that create housing that is affordable for the long term through mechanisms like deed restrictions, which require that homes only be sold or rented to a low-income household at a price that is affordable to that household.
