  • Description

    What is the significance of inclusionary and affording housing? Inclusionary housing requires a percentage of affordable developments for lower income residents in order to increase availability and economic diversity in desirable neighborhoods. While how affordable housing is defined varies according to jurisdiction, it is generally defined as no more than 30% of a person’s income and also provides for rental and homeownership assistance, land use and regulatory incentives.

    This CLE course will explain the various considerations of inclusionary and affordable housing and how that may be interpreted across communities. The course will also present creative approaches for implementation as it refers to the community, residents and developers.
