Creating Housing Choices in Rural Towns

In this Community Conversation, hosted by the Coalition on Diversity & Equity (CoDE), panelists discussed how rural communities are creating housing choices for people who want to live in a town, especially those who work there. In Hebron, for example, 26% of homeowners and 27 percent of renters are ‘cost-burdened,’ meaning they spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing. 

Featured speakers were:  Kate Briggs Johnson, President of The Foundation for Norfolk Living; Jim Crawford, Advisory Council member of the HOPE Partnership, which serves Middlesex County; and Matthew Straub and Kasey LaFlam from Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), which helps towns and cities create affordable housing.
