Fiscal Impact of Mixed-Income Housing Developments The Fiscal Impact of Mixed-Income Housing Developments on Massachusetts Municipalities published by the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute is a compilation of the research to determine whether mixed-income developments that have been built in the state did, in fact, place new burdens on their communities. They incorporated extensive field work in seven municipalities with mixed-income, homeownership developments, and found that 40B projects - mixed-income housing units - have the same fiscal impact as the vast majority of their single family neighbors.
