HUD Releases New Housing in High-Productivity Metropolitan Areas: Encouraging Production

HUD has released a new report, New Housing in High-Productivity Metropolitan Areas: Encouraging Production, that identifies metropolitan areas with high housing costs, which continue to be predominantly on the West and East coasts, and high productivity metropolitan areas, which are spread more broadly throughout the country. The report then identifies strategies that can be used across a wide range of state and local jurisdictions to increase housing supply to better enable households of all income levels to access high-productivity areas. Promising strategies include zoning changes that make it easier to build “missing middle” housing types such as accessory dwelling units and duplexes, transit-oriented development, and streamlined design and review requirements and processes.
