In order to address the housing shortage, towns must allocate significant local funds to create more units serving a range of income levels. This workshop will examine how affordable housing development initiatives are financed, as well as exploring gaps in financing, and will analyze the impact of allocating short-term rental taxes to housing initiatives.
This course is open to Town board and committee members and Town staff who are directly involved in housing, including (but not limited to!):
Finance Committee, Community Preservation Committee, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, Select Board, Board of Health, Conservation Commissions, members of Affordable Housing Trusts, Housing Committee, all housing staff, planners and community development staff.
We also welcome resident housing advocates and future town leaders!
Attendance is free and pre-registration is necessary. This is a virtual workshop. We will send the Zoom link with the workshop reminder.
