To enhance local affordability. To foster inclusive communities.

Core Concepts​

This training is designed to provide local officials and their partners with a basic introduction to affordable housing. The accompanying Developing a Strategy training provides a more in-depth overview of how to develop comprehensive local housing strategies to meet a community’s housing challenges.

At the end of this training, you will better understand why housing is unaffordable, how to finance and create affordable housing, and how to communicate about and advance housing solutions in your locality.
