Housing Supply Accelerator Playbook



The Housing Supply Accelerator Playbook is for local elected officials and community planners working to boost diverse, attainable, and equitable housing supply in communities nationwide.

From removing regulatory barriers to housing to demystifying housing finance, this guide aims to inspire local innovation and supercharge efforts to meet communities where they are and close the nation's housing supply gap.

As a result of the Housing Supply Accelerator partnership between APA and the National League of Cities, the solutions embraced in this guide are supported by our core partners at the Mortgage Bankers Association, National Association of Home Builders, and National Association of Realtors.
