Foundation for Growth blog
(The Foundation for Growth is an initiative by MHP to promote polices that will allow communities to build more housing so the Commonwealth can better sustain and grow its economy. Through ongoing discussion and analysis, the initative's goals are to show how our chronic shortage of housing hinders our economy, what are the costs and benefits of increased housing production and what polices and strategies are needed to achieve housing and economic growth.
