Policy & Industry Support

Resources and networks to advance affordable housing practices.

HDC believes in making our affordable housing delivery system more equitable, sustainable, cost-efficient, and responsive to the people who use it. We support policy, innovation, and peer learning initiatives to advance these goals.

We bring industry experience and relationships to tough and important challenges, such as increasing minority contractor participation in affordable housing development, modeling creative strategies to lower affordable housing capital costs, and planning for public resources to sustain existing affordable housing stock.

Whatever the issue, we are committed to supporting decision-making informed by sound data and diverse perspectives. Scroll down to learn about some of our recent activities—or give us a call to discuss how we can assist you!
