Inclusionary Housing

Description: The typical argument justifying why the private market does not create affordable units is that it is not economically viable given the economics of housing production. Inclusionary housing ordinances work to overcome that economic barrier and establish incentives that may make affordable housing development feasible. These incentives may be in the form of zoning exemptions and density bonuses in return for units reserved for low and moderate income households and may assist communities to meet their fair share of regional affordable housing needs.


This chapter of the Innovative Land Use Techniques Handbook provides an overview of inclusionary housing techniques and presents model ordinance language.
