LocalHousingSolutions.org launched by the Furman Center and Abt Associates

Abt Associates along with the NYU Furman Center, in a press release published earlier today, announced that they would be launching LocalHousingSolutions.org. LocalHousingSolutions.org is a repository-tool of over 80 policies designed to “preserve and strengthen affordability and address a range of other housing objectives.” The tools at the site enable communities to develop strategies that “promote affordability, stability, quality, and choice.”

The launch of the website is only the start of the process of developing policy tools to promote affordability. The website development process is meant to be iterative with stakeholder experiences informing new content, including “case studies that highlight successes and provide insight into lessons learned.” Additionally, there will be additional resources for non-housing, but related policy topics including public health, transportation, and education.
