- Our Work
Massachusetts has a booming innovation economy that continues to grow, but we are facing a multi-dimensional housing crisis. That crisis is eroding our middle class, deepening our income inequality and exacerbating existing racial inequity which threatens the sustainability of that growth. Many housing leaders are working on these issues in impactful ways, yet we know our current solutions are inadequate.
Through the Next Level Housing Solutions initiative, LISC and partners The Boston Foundation and CHAPA seek to facilitate conversations that dovetail with and support all of these efforts while calling upon us, together, to build the solutions and coalitions that are needed to meaningfully address the known crisis. With this, we aim to collectively take our responses to the next level and unlock the potential our community has to meet this crisis head-on.
How can we deploy existing and expanded resources creatively to leverage greater and/or faster impact and craft new solutions? If we ask private sector partners to come to the table as funders, what type of capital is needed and how could it be most impactfully deployed? How can we leverage opportunities created by the current market in support of our housing needs?
