Affordable Housing Development: How It Happens (or not), Where It Happens (or not), Who Needs It, and Why It Matters to Business & Community
The housing crisis in Massachusetts is impacting the economy, families, the elderly, individuals, small and large businesses alike. The Baker Administration has made housing a top priority for the state, seeking to create more than 100,000 housing units over the next 5 years. This will require the participation of all cities and towns in the Commonwealth.
Join Andrew DeFranza from Harborlight and Laura Shufelt from the Massachusetts Housing Partnership, two industry experts, for a lively and informative discussion on the current housing crisis, how we got here, how it can be addressed, and why we should.
Harborlight is a Massachusetts certified Community Development Corporation which develops, manages, and advocates for quality, service-enriched, affordable homes for elders, families, disabled individuals, essential workers, and those who have experienced homelessness. Harborlight’s mission is to create and maintain properties that are affordable and inclusive, doing so collaboratively with communities to cultivate just, equitable and sustainable housing opportunities.
