MUNICIPALITIES AND HOUSING

Municipalities play an important role in mitigating the effects of the current housing crisis: they are familiar with local housing challenges for which local solutions may be worked out. Periféria Center partners with municipalities in better understanding local housing processes and outlining alternative and innovative public policy answers. Through consulting we support municipal projects which aim to tackle the housing crisis.
