The Inclusionary Zoning program creates mixed income developments by requiring affordable housing units in exchange for bonus density. DHCD monitors and enforces Inclusionary Zoning and Affordable Dwelling Units throughout the city.
Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) - requires that a certain percentage of units in a new development or a substantial rehabilitation that expands an existing building set aside affordable units in exchange for bonus density.
Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) - is an umbrella term applied to the for-sale and for-rent homes that are locally restricted for occupancy by households whose income falls within a certain range and are offered at a below-market rate.
