City Rent Subsidy Coalition Seeks Program Increase

On Monday May 20th members of the City Rent Subsidy Coalition testified at the Boston City Council committee on Ways and Means FY25 budget hearing in support of increasing the program funding by $5 million to support more families. We specifically want to prioritize parents with children in the Boston Public School system.
We heard from the Boston Housing Authority, Mayor's Office of Housing, and the Office of Housing Stability about current housing funding and the need for more affordable housing.
Two currently homeless individuals were able to underscore the need for more affordable housing and a more streamlined process to navigate the process of applying for affordable housing.
