Back in the spring we shared with you the finalists for this year's Home Funders Innovation Competition. Since then, we've had a winner, and now a new law on the books that should benefit low income Massachusetts residents, property owners, and nonprofits alike.
But first, in case you didn't remember, the Home Funders Collaborative
is a group of local (Boston-area) funders that first came together in 2003 to develop strategies to address the unprecedented crisis in affordable housing for very low income families in Massachusetts. The Boston Foundation was one of these founding members.
