Foundation for Growth
A chronic shortage of private sector housing production hinders our economy. To address this, MHP has launched the Foundation for Growth research project, using grant funding from State Street Bank.
This multiyear project will analyze how much housing Massachusetts needs to grow its economy, what are the costs and benefits of increased housing production and what strategies and policies are needed to achieve housing and economic growth.
A web site has been created to track this initiative’s progress and to promote discussion on how Massachusetts can best increase housing production, grow its economy, preserve open space and build a better fiscal relationship with its cities and towns.
