Transit-Connected Affordable Homes
SECURING AND EXPANDING AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES NEAR TRANSIT

Regions across the United States are expanding public transportation systems to allow more residential choices, improve access to employment centers, reduce traffic congestion, and lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions. These transit investments will increase property values in many areas, creating community development opportunities and challenges. By taking action to preserve diverse housing options near transit, community leaders and developers can ensure that people of all incomes can enjoy the benefits of these investments.
