Investment – often a blend of financing, lending, and county tax policy – is required to successfully develop new housing, maintain existing housing stock, and navigate housing support systems. Looking holistically at county financing, tax and policy touchpoints can help foster housing affordability. County leaders can make housing projects more attractive through tax incentives and can use revenues to administer supportive programs for low-income individuals. In this session, three former housing task force members will discuss programs counties have enacted that are aimed at supporting the construction of housing units and supporting renters and homeowners.
