Overview

Following the release of the first Virginia-specific “Inclusionary Housing Guidebook” in 2017, Housing Virginia is offering a series of workshops that will demonstrate how localities can use old and new tools at their disposal to create vibrant, mixed-income communities. These sessions will explore why affordable homes are a critical component to healthy neighborhoods, what the state and federal legal framework allows regarding “inclusionary zoning” and other land use tools to encourage a wide range of home for persons of all incomes, how other localities in Virginia and across the nation are accomplishing this goal, and why communities must build custom-tailored solutions for their specific housing needs.
