The Inclusivity Institute is engaged in a six-month launch with a four-pronged approach to engage the community and create meaningful resources that can invigorate partners to tackle the systemic issues of housing affordability and racial as well as class segregation.
Housing security and desegregation
The Institute has plans to work with communities to secure funding for the acquisition of apartment buildings in gentrifying areas and developing a finance structure to maintain reduced rental rates for low-income families for most of the units.
Eviction Avoidance (Family Assistance Program)
The Institute worked to create an innovative new rental assistance program model aimed at addressing housing inequities and instability among low- and moderate-income renter households and reducing our nation’s eviction crisis.
