Through a collaborative effort between the Center for Housing Policy, Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA) and the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), HousingPolicy.org visitors now have access to an online housing policy Toolbox with strategies, policies, and examples developed specifically for the State of Massachusetts.
Launched in 2008, HousingPolicy.org is a “one-stop shop” for housing practitioners looking for guidance on how to increase the availability of homes affordable to working families. The Toolbox section of the site provides information on a range of housing policies and tools – from adaptive reuse to zoning ordinances – available to states and localities.
The newly-launched Massachusetts Housing Policy Tool Box provides easy access to principles and best practices related to the preservation and production of a full range of housing choices for Massachusetts families.
