With rents and home prices continuing to spiral upward, there has been no shortage of policy proposals to alleviate the region’s affordability problem. What these too often lack is a way to evaluate and compare each policy alongside each other. A new report does just that and identifies which state and local interventions — increasing accessory dwelling units, loosening parking requirements or streamlining affordable housing, for example — can be most effective in making real strides toward affordability.
