Inclusionary Housing: Why is it Important?

Inclusionary Housing is important because it:

Offers families across the economic spectrum better access to good jobs, good schools, good transportation, safe neighborhoods, quality commerce, and recreational and cultural amenities;

Provides communities with the benefits of economic, racial and social diversity;

Strengthens local economies so that employers can attract and retain a diverse workforce, including essential workers like nurses, teachers, police officers, and service industry workers; and

Protects the environment by reducing commutes, fostering compact forms of residential living; and contributing to the development of walkable pedestrian environments.
