Eliminate Permit or Reduce Fees for Affordable Housing

Every little bit helps to keep the cost of building affordable for those who need it.

King and Pierce Counties in Washington, for example, exclude construction permit fees for affordable housing which are already paid for by public funds.

The City of Bend, Oregon has included this as one of their incentives when developers/builders meet strict guidelines for including a percentage of affordable housing (carefully defined) in their projects   They also include expediting permit applications as an additional incentive.
