Jul 26: Housing hearing on HDIP

On Wednesday, July 26, 2 pm – 5 pm, the Joint Committee on Housing will hear testimony on bills (S.870, S.863, H.1300) to include a share of affordable housing in the multimillion dollar Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP) tax subsidy for market rate and often luxury housing in Gateway Cities.

These bills propose a more balanced HDIP that would support mixed income housing (both market rate and affordable) by requiring HDIP developments to include not less than 20% units affordable to households up to 50% of AMI.
