Housing the Next Coming Home Generation

The American Dream of home ownership is becoming elusive for many millennials and middle-income households, as property values soar in parts of the country. In Greater Boston, young people are finding it increasingly difficult to purchase a home within a reasonable commuting distance from work. High housing costs prevent families from building equity and limit their ability to afford childcare, transportation, and other needs. The lack of affordable housing options can also result in overcrowding of small or substandard apartments, or even homelessness. Insufficient housing supply and lack of affordability are constraining businesses and limiting job growth, making housing a top issue for corporate and government leaders.

Pioneer Institute’s 2020 Better Government Competition seeks ideas that will address the lack of housing availability, affordability and accessibility to transportation options. Enter today – you could win $10,000! Download the 2020 Better Government Competition Guidelines and submit your entry here by April 13th at 5:00 PM ET.
