The Financing and Economics of Affordable Housing Development: Incentives and disincentives to private-sector participation — Research Bulletin

This eight page summary of the full report concludes:  “There is a need for debate and discussion of the ideas in this paper, as well as broader questions about stimulating rental housing development. For example, should stimulat­ing more private-sector participation in affordable housing development and financing be a government policy objective? Should the funding envelope be modified to provide more money for purchasing existing buildings and rehabilitating them for affordable rental? How should policy recommenda­tions and actions be shaped to increase effectiveness in ad­dressing needs in gentrifying areas?”
