In 2022, Citizens Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA) launched the Neighborhood Emergency Housing Support Program, a one-time grant program that funded community-based organizations with a high degree of linguistic and cultural competency and capacity to conduct proactive outreach to residents about how to access housing stability resources. The Boston Foundation and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay joined CHAPA to expand the funding for this program.

Following the grant program, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council analyzed the efficacy of emergency rental relief and the vital role community-based organizations have in connecting residents with resources.

Join us for a review of the recommendations as well as a panel discussion featuring community-based organization representatives sharing their experiences!
