Housing Policy

Everyone in Massachusetts deserves the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, and affordable home in the community they choose.

By focusing on policy solutions that encourage the production and preservation of affordable homes, equitable planning in all of our cities and towns, and the prosperity of our neighbors and communities, we can begin to undo discriminatory policies and barriers that have perpetuated segregation and hindered generational wealth-building for decades.
