What we do

We provide people with the tools they need to produce an equitable future.

Grounded in the idea that all individuals have a right to quality housing, education, jobs, transportation and safety in order to lead decent and productive lives, the Center strives to embolden people by:

  • Providing information that can make change happen.
  • Equipping residents, community organizations, local government agencies and others with the tools they need to deal with complex community development problems.
  • Sharing our extensive experience and knowledge of affordable housing development, policy and finance.
  • Producing community surveys, impact studies, needs assessments, gap analyses, market studies, feasibility analyses, affordable housing plans and financial assessments.
