Securing high-quality, affordable housing near the workplace poses a complex challenge for communities across urban America, and this book offers the best practices to advocate for the development of mixed-income communities close to employment centers and transportation. The volume is structured in a series of case studies that detail several key aspects of successful workforce housing, including partnership and programming, innovative use of financing and regulatory frameworks, excellence in construction and design, and exemplary community impacts. It also features interviews with project representatives, which provide valuable insight into how to take advantage of difficulties faced and make a project a successful model for replication.


"Tackles an issue facing many jurisdictions and offers valuable case studies. Insights from industry leaders were particularly enlightening." —National Association of Real Estate Editors, Bruss Award judges
