Programs and initiatives to equitably provide for basic needs of the entire community.
We are working towards
- Fewer households spending more than 30% of their income on shelter
- Narrowing the income gap between the richest and poorest citizens
- More programs and projects that address low-income citizens
Safe, secure, decent housing is a basic need. Along with meeting that need, poverty reduction helps individuals and families reduce the potential for repeated crises, enabling them to resume their accustomed roles as workers, business people, and family members in the community.
