The Housing Smart Actions included here are an initial set of actions communities can take to support the preservation and development of affordable and workforce housing. As the program is implemented, these set of actions is likely to expand to include new and innovative strategies. Each action has a set of “Minimum Criteria” that need to be met to receive credit for the action as part of the program. These criteria are included in the description of each action and in the Community Submission form.
