Inclusionary Housing Toolbox

Categorized Under: Community Development



This January 2006 report, written by Melanie Freitas and ICF International's Carole Norris and Shawna LaRue, was produced for the U.S. Department of Housing and Community Development (HUD) to assist state, county, and local government housing agencies in understanding how an Inclusionary Housing Ordinance works, and the steps that must be undertaken to enact these ordinances. The guidebook brings together perspectives from local government’s that have Inclusionary Zoning, along with key steps and decision points a jurisdiction would undertake to determine whether to enact Inclusionary Zoning, and what an Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance would cover. It discusses the key legal issues that must be addressed, and provides practical advice about structuring and administering the ordinance, as well as how to effectively use HOME Program funds to enhance affordable housing produced as a result of Inclusionary Zoning.
