White House releases housing development tool kit for communities

By: Leslie Black-Plumeau

In response to declining housing affordability in many parts of the country, the White House released a report this week on best practices for reducing local housing development barriers. The accumulation of these barriers has reduced the ability of many housing markets to respond to growing demand, the report explains.

Through the Vermont Housing Data website, VHFA shares and maintains best practice information for municipalities assessing and addressing local housing needs. Check out its tools and guides and look at what is working in communities both inside and outside Vermont.
