Pro-Housing Resource Library

Welcome to the Abundant Housing Massachusetts pro-housing resource library!

On this page you will find a running compilation of publicly available informational material, reports, and scholarly research that:

  • Introduces the topic of zoning
  • Provides an overview of zoning policy and the housing shortage in Massachusetts
  • Evaluates how exclusionary zoning impacts housing affordability, residential segregation, economic development, and environmental sustainability

We hope this library will serve as an educational resource for pro-housing activists – old and new – as they make the case for more homes in Massachusetts.
