- First, read the Survey Summary Page for discussion of a recent survey of
local officials - their views on local barriers to producing affordable housing
and on tools that cities can utilize to produce affordable housing.
- Then find out How To Approach Your City with suggestions on how to effectively advocate for affordable housing with local officials.
- Next, find your city in the list below and click on it for your City Snapshot, which has information on affordable housing that is specific to your city. Information includes current and future housing goals, as well as other important facts.
- If your city participated in the survey, then the City Snapshot page will have additional information, such as barriers to housing production in your community and opinions of local officials on what city strategies can assist in leading to low cost housing. You can compare your city's survey responses with the Survey Results to get a sense of how your city compares. Putting all this information together should give you a fairly complete picture of where your city stands on affordable housing, and where there might be room for improvement.
