Market-rate housing is typically affordable to those with higher incomes, and affordable housing has traditionally been built for lower-income households. But what about those who can’t afford market-rate housing but don’t qualify for affordable housing? How do we create housing for those in the “missing middle”? What financing tools can and should be available to address this gap, and what zoning changes are needed to encourage the production of smaller and less expensive housing units, such as fourplexes and granny flats? Come examine these questions with experts of “missing middle” development. This project has been made possible in part by a grant from Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
