40B Affordable Housing Consultants

In January 2014, all four subsidizing agen­cies entered into an “Interagency Agree­ment Regarding Housing Opportunities for Families with Children,” which gen­erally requires at least 10 percent of the units in comprehensive permit develop­ments to have three or more bedrooms. The purpose of the Interagency Agree­ment is to protect families with children from housing discrimination in the pro­duction of affordable and mixed-income housing under Chapter 40B. Thus, devel­opers have to report the proposed per­centage of three-bedroom units in their PE applications and later, they have to document compliance with the policy when they seek Final Approval from one of the subsidizing agencies (after the comprehensive permit has been issued).
