CSNDC is committed to helping residents who face financial difficulties that threaten their ability to pay the rent or cover other essential expenses. In the worst case, periods of economic uncertainty can result in eviction or homelessness. We have renewed our commitment to prevention of eviction and homelessness by expanding our partnership with Metro Housing, Boston’s regional housing authority, and others. CSNDC refers tenants in jeopardy of eviction due to inability to pay the rent to Metro Housing’s Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) program, a well-established source of emergency rent assistance, among other support sources.
CSNDC’s affordable housing programs also have a significant impact on the homeless population in the surrounding community. Through our new and existing housing developments we set aside rental units for homeless families or families at risk of homelessness in an affordable housing unit within our portfolio.
