Flexible Affordable Housing Policy Design using Facility Location Models


Affordable and subsidized housing providers must design and implement housing strategies: where, when and with what types of housing to best meet the needs of low- and moderate-income households for affordable/low-cost permanent shelter. Recent research has proposed a multiobjective integer programming model for this purpose that jointly optimizes measures of net social benefit and equity and addresses limited variations in housing characteristics. This paper extends the affordable housing planning model to better reflect current research and practice in affordable housing and better meet the needs of affordable housing providers.
