Housing Solutions Handbook

New Hampshire faces a critical housing supply problem, especially affordable housing to support a growing workforce. Having a range of housing types for all segments of the population should be a primary concern for all New Hampshire communities. Finding solutions to this housing challenge will require collaboration among all levels of government and a wide range of stakeholders. This new handbook, "Housing Solutions for New Hampshire," focuses on the range of tools and techniques that can be employed at the local level and provides highlights of a number of successful efforts. It also offers tools, such as sample municipal regulations, that demonstrate methods for communities to provide for affordable and workforce housing development opportunities.


Funding for “Housing Solutions for New Hampshire” was provided by New Hampshire Housing and contributions from Fannie Mae and the Northern New England Housing Investment Fund.
