Reduce Housing Stress

Stable, affordable housing is a key social determinant of health. MidTown must continue to be a home for residents and families of all backgrounds. Addressing long term affordability and displacement issues will require a multi-faceted approach to expand paths to purchase and homeownership. Financing, programming, and assistance are needed to reduce the stress often felt by local families in trying to maintain their homes or remain in the community as real estate prices fluctuate.
