Why Affordable Housing?
Workforce, senior and family housing
Many cities and towns in the Greater Boston area are faced with a growing senior population but few options for seniors to downsize and remain in the town where they have built their lives. For young families, the cost of housing is so high that they are priced out of many communities.
Smart-growth and transit-oriented housing
Building affordable housing is also a focus for economic growth in the region. Without it, Massachusetts companies will struggle to retain their workforce as residents leave for less expensive areas of the country.
