Housing as History: New Directions for Boston’s Subsidized Housing: Learning from the Past

Date: Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Time: 6-7:30 pm

As neighborhoods across Boston face enormous development pressure, there is a risk that low-income residents will be forced out of the city. Social disruption due to gentrification, shifting government policies and programs, and the challenges of climate change make the future of affordable housing in Boston precarious. In the past, Boston modeled creative and successful solutions to dire housing problems, and there is hope that the city can continue to deploy innovative policies that will brighten the future for all city residents. Our final panel in this series will look at the future of affordable housing in Boston, taking stock of past lessons learned.

Please register here to attend. There will also be a pre-talk reception at 5:30 pm.

This event is part of the Housing as History series, organized by the Massachusetts Historical Society and co-sponsored by the Joint Center for Housing Studies and Mass Humanities.
