The following is a brief and admittedly partial list of publications
that address the issues surrounding regulatory barriers to affordable
housing. Because the first section is comprised of HUD
publications (which are in the public domain), we are able to
provide links to the full-text versions of the documents. In many
cases, these publications are also available in printed form from
HUD USER for a nominal charge
by calling 1-800-245-2691, or you may order online by following
this link to the HUD
USER online store. Just be sure to have the full title ready
when placing your order.
The third list, under the heading Bibliographic
Database, includes titles, abstracts, and publishers' citations
for publications that may also be of interest, but which are not
published by HUD. As a result, we're unable to provide the full-text
versions. Nonetheless, the citations will help you secure the publications
from the respective publishers.
Please check back from time to time, as this list will be revised,
as our publications database continues to grow.
These publications are available as free downloads (in *.pdf format)
from the HUD User website, or in printed form for a nominal charge
by calling 1.800.245.2691.

The documents listed in the RBC Bibliographic Database have been
drawn from the much larger HUD
USER Bibliographic Database. Publications have been selected
based on their relevance to regulatory concerns surrounding affordable
housing. For a much broader subject matter search, you may wish
to visit the HUD
USER Bibliographic Database, which resides on www.huduser.org,
the parent site of HUD's Regulatory Barriers Clearinghouse. Some
of the suggested keywords for a thorough search are: Regulatory
Barriers, Joint Venture for Affordable Housing, Accessory Apartments,
Zoning, Zoning Regulations, Granny Flats, Building Codes, Rehabilitation,
Land Development, Land Development Standards, Impact Fees.
