A symposium bringing together professionals from housing, planning, public health, and government will take place virtually over four Thursdays in September.
Hosted by MHP partner MassHousing, the 2021 Neighborhood Hub Annual Symposium—Renew and Repair: Healthy, Safe, and Affordable Homes in Massachusetts—will be a series of conversations of particular interest for Massachusetts’ 26 Gateway Cities:
- Healthy & Affordable Homes - September 9
- Underused Lots for Affordable Homes - September 16
- Local & Regional Partnerships for Affordable Homes - September 23
- Home Repairs, Rehabs & Remodels - September 30
Each session will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Sign up for any or all of the symposium.
The Neighborhood Hub is a multi-agency partnership that in addition to MHP includes MassHousing, MassDevelopment, the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC), the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassINC), and the Commonwealth's Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), in collaboration with the Attorney General's Office.
The primary goal of the Neighborhood Hub is to support cities with high rates of vacant, abandoned and deteriorating homes, especially those facing increased strain due to the health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
