Housing and Community Planning

Housing and Community Planning Icon


Safe and affordable housing options are vital to creating healthy communities. Worrying about housing is stressful and can have health impacts. In addition, children without housing may struggle in school.

Our goal is to promote housing choices to meet the community’s needs by:

  • Encouraging increased housing variety and supply to help slow rent increases and keep home prices modest
  • Increasing affordable housing to help meet the needs of low and middle-income households
  • Identifying incentives and funding to support affordable and equitable housing options

We are working on a multi-year effort to improve housing access and affordability. We are researching and analyzing housing trends and engaging stakeholders to support and encourage housing through a comprehensive set of tools and policies.
