Map to Explore At-Risk Affordable Housing in Massachusetts
In an effort to provide stakeholders with a clearer understanding of the existing affordable housing stock, CEDAC maintains a database of over 125,000 housing units in 1,500 properties located throughout the state of Massachusetts. The database integrates multiple public data sources to provide an overview of privately owned, publicly subsidized properties in the state. CEDAC uses this combined database to identify when specific affordable housing properties are eligible to end affordability restrictions and convert to “market rate” rent levels. Periodically, CEDAC posts summary reports on the affordable housing stock on our website www.cedac.org/preservation.
The Metropolitan Area Planning Council in Boston developed the interactive map to display the CEDAC data.
