BLM's Affordable Housing Program Unpopular

Municipalities show little interest in Bureau of Land Management's program to make land available at discounted rates for affordable housing.

"The idea looks good on paper: Release land at below-market value -- in some cases discounting by as much as 95 percent -- to local governmental entities, including housing authorities, so affordable housing can be built.

It's a simple idea that becomes a not-so-simple proposition when federal and local governments and the business world intersect."
