This report presents two case studies and a handbook on the process of overcoming political obstacles to build a consensus for affordable housing. In spite of greater public awareness about the need for affordable housing, local officials, citizens, and developers can learn about the difficulties of implementing new housing in their communities and the benefits of various mediation techniques to meet those challenges.
