Fenway CDC thanks Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) /Beth Israel Lahey Health for supporting our work.
Fenway CDC will be the lead organization in a new partnership with Boston Tenant Coalition, Homes for Families, Mass Law Reform Institute and the Greater Bowdoin Geneva Neighborhood Association. We will organize and campaign together at the City and State level to move legislation, budget items, and policies that will increase funding for affordable housing, rental subsidies, further fair housing, and improve tenant rights. Our vital work will help address the homelessness crisis in the Commonwealth. BIDMC selected our coalition as one of 17 local organizations to receive funding for impactful initiatives in the areas of housing affordability, jobs and financial security, and behavioral health. This is BIDMC’s first major investment through its Community-based Health Initiative.
