Hi Friend,

The YIMBY Act requires Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) recipients to report the extent to which they are implementing specific pro-affordability and anti-discriminatory housing policies. Recognizing and eliminating exclusionary policies – zoning and density restrictions, onerous parking requirements, and other regulations – as well as uplifting pro-housing policies such as density bonuses and tax abatements for affordable housing are important steps to solving the national housing crisis.

This bill will help communities recognize their own agency in the housing shortage and provide them with a framework for smarter policymaking.
