Hooray for Housing Choice and HDIP

Gateways Episode 8

In this episode of Gateways, co-hosts Ben Forman and Dr. Tracy Corley dive deep into state and federal housing policies that stimulate housing development in Gateway Cities. In response to Gov. Baker’s Housing Choice legislation announcement, they analyze its potential impacts on the quantity and quality of housing across the state.

Tune in to Ben and Tracy’s conversation, which tees up clips from MassINC’s Feb. 27 State House Forum, “Stimulating Transformative Development in Gateway Cities,” co-sponsored by LOCUS of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance.

Event host Senator Brendan Crighton describes how tools like the Housing Development Incentive Program (HDIP) and other incentives have expanded investment and opportunities for Lynn, MA. Forum panelists Tim Murray of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, Laura Barrett of MassDevelopment, and Dave Traggorth of Traggorth Companies build on Sen. Crighton’s introduction through a candid discussion with moderator Larry Field of the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance.
