The Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association is holding a three-session virtual conference in January to help communities expand their affordable housing opportunities.

The virtual conference, “Taking the Initiative on Housing Production in Your Community,” will be held on three Thursdays, Jan. 14, 21 and 28, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

The conference will cover the most up-to-date information and breakout sessions covering Chapter 40B (comprehensive permit), Chapter 40R (Smart Growth Districts) and Chapter 40A, inclusionary zoning, public land use, fair housing, and other tools that create and preserve affordability in Massachusetts communities.

Tickets covering all three sessions are $25 for non-CHAPA members and $15 for CHAPA members. Details and online registration are available at
