A Housing Production Plan (HPP) is a community's proactive strategy for planning and developing housing that is affordable for its residents.  The plan creates a strategy to enable the community to meet its affordable housing needs in a manner consistent with the Chapter 40B statute and regulations and to develop housing unit diversity that can enable residents to reduce their housing cost burden.  The first step in developing a plan is a detailed Housing Needs Assessment.  Through extensive review of demographic and housing data, a community develops a community profile, conducts an inventory of the housing characteristics and evaluates the housing needs of the community’s residents.   A community then develops strategies by

which it can meet its housing needs. 

Information about the Housing Production Plan can be found on the Department of Housing and Economic Development’s (DHCD's) website.

SRPEDD is available to assist communities with the development of their Housing Production Plan and has assisted with several plans.
