Targeted efforts to create and preserve dedicated affordable housing in resource-rich areas overview
By focusing housing affordability programs on resource-rich areas, cities, towns, and counties can help ensure that low- and moderate-income households benefit from the same advantages and opportunities available to their higher-income peers. To be successful, such approaches must help affordable housing developers overcome the challenges of high land prices, competition from private developers, and other obstacles that make it difficult to develop affordable housing in resource-rich areas.
