About the partnership

The Housing Partnership aimed to contribute to the creation of better legal and financial conditions for EU cities that need to invest in new, renewed, affordable housing for their populations on a broad scale. More specifically, the focus of the Partnership was addressing affordable housing needs through legislation, knowledge creation and funding, as well as aiding the supply of affordable housing, including public, social and municipal housing, affordable rental housing, affordable cooperative housing and affordable home ownership.
