How can you use the recently-passed Housing Choice legislation to meet the housing needs of your community? In this webinar, Housing Choice in Your Community, we'll share the details of the new law, go over state guidance, and highlight decisions that have yet to be made.

You'll also hear from municipal staff on successful rezoning efforts that have expanded housing opportunities in Massachusetts communities with different needs and attributes.
