Archive: MHP Housing Institute, all virtual

Due to a rise in COVID-19, the 2022 MHP Housing Institute was held virtually on June 7 and June 8. The theme of this year's event was "Complete Neighborhoods: It all starts with home." Sessions focused on creating affordable housing that is closer to transit and daily needs, and how sound housing policies can help the Commonwealth address a range of related issues such as the economy, equity, public health, climate and transportation. In addition, MHP’s Center for Housing Data (CHD) unveiled "Residensity," a new tool that uses a statewide database to estimate residential units and lot-level residential density for every parcel in the Commonwealth.
