What sorts of incentives do you offer to developers of housing, including financial assistance?
Ipswich encourages developers to include affordable units in their plans. To give you greater flexibility in meeting the inclusionary zoning requirements, you have a choice of including one or more affordable units in the project or making a payment to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

If you are the owner of a multifamily building, you may be eligible to receive a payment in exchange for a permanent affordability restriction on one or more of the apartments or condos.

If you are a developer with a Comprehensive Permit / 40B project in mind, you can expect to receive proactive collaboration from everyone in the Planning Department and affordable housing staff.

Please see the Ipswich Zoning Bylaws for more information.
