Neighborhood Development

We work to build strong, inclusive communities with access to stable and affordable housing for all.  Find out how we plan to do it.

We work with communities to improve Boston’s neighborhoods through investing public resources. Our main jobs are to create housing options, support tenants, foster homeownership, end homelessness, and manage the City’s real estate.  Want to take a deeper dive into our department structure and mission?
