Project Description: A local housing strategy comprehensively describes the approach a community can take to meet its short and long-term housing objectives. A local housing strategy coordinates the actions of all the local government agencies and divisions that administer policies and programs affecting housing. The best local housing strategies utilize the full set of tools that local governments have at their disposal, including zoning ordinances, building codes, permitting processes, property tax abatements, and federal, state, and local housing subsidies. They also engage the private and nonprofit sectors of the community as key partners.
