How to Use This Site

Welcome to the HousingPolicy.org Toolkit MA, an affordable housing strategy toolbox developed by Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association and Massachusetts Housing Partnership as part of the Welcome Home Massachusetts initiative.

Welcome Home Massachusetts supports local initiatives in furtherance of the development of affordable housing opportunities across Massachusetts. The Toolbox MA provides easy access to strategies and best practices related to the preservation and production of a full range of affordable housing choices.

The site will be regularly updated and is arranged in an easy-to-navigate format that includes the following categories:

  • Overview: the Development Process
  • Creating A Housing Needs Assessment
  • Building Local Support
  • Effective Zoning and Land Use Strategies
  • Preserving and Creating Affordability in Existing Properties
  • Finance Basics
  • Home Ownership

 

With each category, a drop-down menu enables the visitor to navigate the site in three different ways: delve deeper into the topic at hand, continue to the next related policy or go back to an earlier section.

We appreciate the opportunity to partner with the national Center for Housing Policy to support local housing initiatives in Massachusetts.
