MSAC has long fought to create and preserve affordable housing across Massachusetts.
Currently, MSAC is working to preserve a specific kind of state subsidized affordable hosing called 13A. Over the next few years more than 5,000 units--2,000 of which are elderly designated--are at risk of "losing" their affordability and converting to market rate rent, which would displace low-income residents. Check back soon for updates on this critical campaign as it develops.
We also regularly help residents organize tenant councils so they can know their rights and address problems collectively, to hold managers and housing authorities accountable to security, local services, and maintenance issues.
