Resilience in Affordable Housing Forum

5.10.2019 | 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Thank you to the 200+ community members who joined us for a conversation on climate and social resilience in Massachusetts' affordable housing portfolio. 

We heard from national and local resiliency experts and multifamily affordable housing developers about how they are preparing buildings and communities for extreme weather events, sea level rise, power outages, and other climate change-related disasters. We also discusssed how we can collectively plan for and implement building improvements and emergency management systems that ensure safer, healthy, and affordable homes for all.
