Housing Production:

Mixed-Income Public Development

New models for mixed-income public development of housing have become a go-to approach for jurisdictions and housing agencies seeking to grow their housing production volume in recent years.

There are a few reasons this type of public development is useful for housing markets. First, these programs can help optimize the allocation of scarce federal subsidies. Second, they are akin to inclusionary zoning, but with no downside risk to housing production. Third, they can push against the hyper-cyclicality of housing production.

Center for Public Enterprise works with local, state and federal public agencies, including housing finance agencies and housing authorities, on mixed-income public development program design and implementation. For more information, get in touch with us.
