Our Housing Crisis: How we got here and what we can do

Has affordable housing always been this difficult to find? If not, how did we get into the situation that we are in? Is the affordable housing availability in Franklin County better, worse, or just like everywhere else in the country?

Working on the development of affordable housing is a daunting task. Is there any help from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or from the Federal Government available now or in the wings? Are there things that citizens can do with or without government help to create more affordable housing?

These and other topics will be considered by our keynote panel of:

Senator Jo Comerford's slides: Housing as a Human Right - SEN Comerford.pdf

Gina Govoni's slides: Housing in Franklin County.pdf
