What do you do when your city has economic conditions that vary dramatically from neighborhood to neighborhood? This webinar will explore Inclusionary Housing Programs that are structured to respond to intra-city market variations. Using case studies from across the country, we will explore what works and what doesn’t in terms of defining sub-areas, and varying set-asides, in-lieu fees and subsidies to achieve sometimes-competing policy goals. Activists and practitioners attending this webinar will come away with a better understanding of how to tailor their inclusionary housing policy specifically to accommodate for large intra-city housing market variations.
If you would like to find out more about inclusionary housing, please download the Inclusionary Housing Policy Focus Report published by the Lincoln Land Institute, with support from Cornerstone Partnership and and National Community Land Trust Network. This is the go-to report for communities to strategically think through political, technical, legal, and practical considerations for inclusionary housing policies and programs to be successful.
