Affordable Single-Family Housing Study
The study, conducted by AECm focuses on construction costs of affordable (for-sale at less than $300,000) single-family homes in urban, suburban, and rural communities. With assumptions of land costs, it concludes that constructing affordable single-family homes is viable using various construction methods.
Biennial Housing Plan
New Hampshire Housing is required to prepare or update on a biennial basis a state housing plan to address the housing needs of low- and moderate-income individuals and families. The plan is submitted to the Governor and Executive Council, the Speaker of the House, and the President of the Senate for comment. Although this is by definition a two-year plan, housing needs analysis and housing program planning are conducted annually.
