Working for safe, decent, and affordable housing is an integral part of the Allston Brighton CDCs mission. Since 1980, the CDC has developed over 500 homes for low- and moderate-income renters and first-time homebuyers. Today, we are focused expanding opportunity to stable housing in a neighborhood of high rents and limited homeownership opportunities.
We are dedicated to growing and supporting strong, healthy, vibrant neighborhoods in Allston and Brighton. To achieve this goal we are actively working to increase owner occupancy through the All Bright Homeownership Program, where we buy homes and sell them to homebuyers looking to set down permanent roots in the community.
To build a stronger community, we mobilize and support new voices for community leadership, working with neighbors of all backgrounds to make Allston Brighton a stronger and better place to live. We are also increasing neighborhood stability by strengthening institutional and community partnerships.
Every year on September 1st, staff and volunteers canvas Allston, providing welcome packets with information on being a good neighbor, tenant rights and responsibilities, and community resources to thousands of students as they move back into the neighborhood.
The CITC provides a 50% state refundable tax credit when you make a donation to Allston Brighton CDC.
