Housing / Anti-Displacement 

Housing is the lynchpin for opportunity: the location and quality of the home you can afford not only affects your living space and household budget — it determines the quality of your schools, the length of your commute, your health outcomes, and more. Housing Anti-Displacement tools work to expand housing opportunity and prevent displacement of low-income communities of color.

The Housing Anti-Displacement Tools below cover three key strategies:

  1. Increase Affordability: Expand and preserve affordability through inclusionary zoning and housing trust funds.
  2. Opportunity Housing: Ensure public policies and investments foster healthy, economically-integrated neighborhoods and community ownership with policies such as tenant and community opportunity to purchase, community land trusts, and housing trust funds.
  3. Protect Tenants: Secure vulnerable renters and prevent displacement through legal representation, just cause legal protections, rental registries, and rent stabilization.
