Community

We support communities, housing authorities and non-profit housing organizations in their efforts to create affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families.

We provide a variety of resources related to affordable housing planning and development including but not limited to:

  • Drafting Request for Proposals and assisting with developer selection
  • Helping communities zone for increased density
  • Assessing site feasibility and providing other pre-development activities
  • Providing asset management education and assistance
  • Planning and assessing housing needs

We can award small grants, engage consultants, and provide staff time to assist with any topics listed on our Technical Support page.

We also produce publications and conducts workshops to explain the affordable housing development process, navigate the associated rules and regulations, and provide guidance on state/local resources available to communities. Visit our Publications and Materials page to learn more about our latest guidebooks and trainings.

In an effort to provide communities the most up-to-date information about policy issues at the state level, community assistance also engages in special initiatives with a variety of partner agencies. Visit our Special Initiatives page for more information about recent initiatives we’ve engaged in and research we’ve conducted.
