New Fund Helps Developers Protect Against Displacement


The City of Boston, CEDAC and LISC created a loan fund to help qualified nonprofit affordable housing development partners compete in today’s real estate market. This fund will be used to acquire substantially vacant and underutilized parcels of land and buildings for future development as mixed-income and affordable housing. The funding will target transit-oriented neighborhoods that have development potential but are at risk of gentrification with potential displacement of long term residents.

The City of Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development will provide information to nonprofit developers looking at  prospective sites, including ownership status, liens, availability for purchase, tax title, etc. DND will work with other City and State agencies to identify parcels and obtain relevant information on behalf of nonprofit developers whenever possible.
