came to

announced the formationof the Joint Venture for Affordable Housing as apublic-private partnership to find ways to overcome the cost impact ofoutdated and unnecessary building and land use regulations.Over the past five years, we at
HUD
have worked with builders andlocal government officials in more than
30
communities across the nationin a successful effort to demonstrate that regulatory reform can reducehousing costs both in new subdivisions and for new homes in establishedneighborhoods. The Affordable Housing Demonstration projects proved thatthis approach works;the Joint Venture concept of a cooperative effort toreduce housing costs is now an operating program of the Department.reported in a series of individual case studies, have now been combinedin two final reports with the general title, Affordable Housing:Challenge and Response.Local Government and Developers," describes the land use, sitedevelopment, and administrative and procedural changes
