Gardner Institute report identifies best practices for meeting housing affordability challenge in Utah

December 8, 2020 (Salt Lake City) – The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute, in partnership with the Salt Lake Chamber’s Housing Gap Coalition, today released a landmark study that identifies five best practices developed by local jurisdictions aimed at meeting the housing affordability challenge in Utah. To identify best practices, the Gardner Institute conducted a survey of 35 practitioners engaged in housing affordability work across the state. The study examines why these practices are “best practices”, the implementation of each practice, and the potential outcomes produced.
