Principles for Allocating Housing Funds

Allocating affordable housing funds can be a daunting task, when need outpaces funds and political pressures abound.

These principles arose from the group’s discussions of participants’ experiences and their observations of different allocation processes over time. We include some examples of allocation procedures based on the principles to help make the ideas more concrete.
