Towards a Comprehensive Affordable Housing Policy in Israel
This comprehensive policy paper proposes tools for the implementation of affordable-housing policies in Israel. The document provides general explanations of the goals of affordable housing, the target audience for affordable housing, where such housing is needed, who is responsible for its advancement and how it can be implemented. It presents an up-to-date picture of the current situation in Israel, as well as the recommendations of the Affordable Housing Center.
Long Term Rental Housing in Israel: An Evaluation of Government Policies
The Affordable Housing Center and the the Alrov Institute for Real Estate Research at the Tel Aviv University Faculty of Management set up a multidisciplinary working group of students and researchers from the Faculty of Law, the School of Economics and the Depatment of Geography to address the question: "Why is there no long-term rental market in Israel?"
The working group decided to write a policy paper focused on the evaluation of current government policies.
The document presents and analyzes the steps that the government has taken to advance the market for long-term rental housing in Israel

Models of partial ownership
A background document for developing government policy promoted by The Affordable Housing Center. The document presents new models of ownership currently applied in different countries in the world that can contribute to helping residents of Israel enter the home ownership market.
Role of Residents in the Advancement of Urban Regeneration
A survey of selected models from around the world
In Israel, urban regeneration processes are challenged at all times by a system of reciprocal relations between three main actors: residents, developers and the local authority. Tensions derived from this triangle negatively affect the ability of these processes to provide appropriate answers to residents’ needs and lead to difficulties in the implementation of plans that have received official approval, as well as delays in planning, permitting and construction.
In collaboration with the Planning Department of the City of Tel Aviv-Yafo, the AHC conducted a research that present a range of models that have been developed around the world in which local authorities and residents play roles different than those they usually play today in Israel.
Sde Dov Social and Affordable Housing plan
The Sde Dov Master Plan is the largest (1,450 Dunam) development plan being promoted in Tel Aviv. The plan will enable the construction of 16,000 housing units for approximately 41,000 new residents. Due to the extremely high land value, public policy tools need to be implemented in order to create a balanced social mix that includes middle and low income households.
The social housing plan for Sde Dov lays out a concrete plan to allocate social and affordable housing units as part of the Sde Dov Master Plan and serves as a case study for the proper allocation of social housing in high demand areas.
Research into Rental Housing
The AHC completed a research project conducted in cooperation with a start-up company that has developed a rental-housing website called Dfrent. That study was based on a comparative survey of rental markets in six cities around the world, in which we examined regulatory aspects of renting an apartment (supervision of rental prices, landlord–tenant obligations), the scope and nature of the rental market (short term, long term, share of the total housing market) and other parameters. French-, German- and English-speaking students from the international program of the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Humanities took part in this work. The survey revealed large differences between rental markets in different cities. Alongside common trends and characteristics, such as increasing demand for urban housing and rising housing prices, stark differences can be seen in the regulation that underlies the different housing markets. In practice, this leads to significant differences in most of the parameters examined in this work.
Urban Regeneration and the Elderly
One important part of our work in the field of urban regeneration
concerns the effects of such processes on the populations currently living
in areas slated for urban renewal, particularly vulnerable populations.
The elderly are a population often mentioned in this context. Although
the elderly population is heterogeneous; in general, it does have
distinctive needs and characteristics in the context of urban-renewal
projects and their consequences. Based on this, research has examined
the gaps between the regulatory, economic and social mechanisms
used to advance urban renewal in Israel and the distinctive needs and
characteristics of the elderly population. In light of that research, we
investigated which tools could be used to minimize the possible negative
impact of urban renewal on the elderly and allow that population to
enjoy the benefits of such projects.
This research was initiated by and carried out in partnership with the
Ministry of Welfare and Social Services, and supervised by a steering
committee that included representatives of a number of additional
government offices. On 30 July 2017, this steering committee held its final meeting for this project and a final draft of the research report was sent to the committee members in early September 2017.
Research: Housing Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) in Local
Authorities in Israel
The IAHC received a research grant from the Alrov Institute for Real Estate Research, (at TAU’s Coller School of Management), to study public-private partnerships (PPP) and the ability of local authorities to supply
suitable and affordable housing for their low- and middle-income residents through such partnerships. This research has three main goals. The first goal is to map and describe local authorities’ use of such partnerships to create affordable housing. The second is to define and analyze opportunities that exist within the current
regulatory regime in Israel for the creation of affordable housing through public-private partnerships. Finally, the research aims to outline practical proposals for regulatory changes that could pave the way for the use of such partnerships to create affordable housing.
