The Big Picture Project


The Big Picture Project (BPP) began in 2012 as a cross-sector partnership aimed at a more coordinated approach to affordable housing development along the 11-mile Green Line light rail line that connects the two downtowns.

The project outlined three main goals for the corridor over the next decade:

  • Invest in the production and preservation of long-term affordable housing
  • Stabilize the neighborhood and invest in activities that help low-income people stay in their homes
  • Strengthen families through coordinated investments

BPP has continued to report annual progress on its original Central Corridor Affordable Housing Coordinated Plan. In 2017, BPP also sponsored a series of convenings about pressing affordable housing issues along the Central Corridor.
