Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

In 2014, Mayor Walsh released Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030, a comprehensive housing plan designed to address the housing needs of Boston’s growing population. In 2018, a planned assessment found that Boston’s population was growing faster than expected, with 759,000 residents expected to live in Boston in 2030.

The 2018 Update of the Housing Boston 2030 plans sets new goals for housing production, including income-restricted housing designed to be affordable to a range of incomes, plans for strategic growth that preserve and enhance existing neighborhoods, and new focus areas on preventing displacement, increasing homeownership, and promoting fair and equitable access to housing.

The themes of the HB2030 2018 update can be summarized in three housing affordability categories:  production of new housing, preservation of existing affordable housing, and protection of those households most at risk.  

To accomplish this goal, we are going to help create 69,000 new units of housing at a variety of income levels across the City, including nearly 16,000 new units of income-restricted housing that will bring Boston’s total number of income-restricted units to 70,000 by 2030.

Key Stakeholders

We would like to thank the members of the Mayor’s Housing Task Force 2018.
