Resident Empowerment Toolkit

The purpose of the Resident Empowerment Toolkit is to help Boston Housing Authority residents understand and protect their housing rights throughout the redevelopment process.

In this toolkit, you will find helpful information ranging from best practices to organize your neighbors to tips on how to negotiate important policies with the developer/management of your site.

Our goal is that the tips, best practices, and templates provided in this document will increase the knowledge of residents meeting with developers and their new management companies, and help residents feel more confident when they are advocating for themselves and their neighbors.

Spanish and Chinese versions of the toolkit will be available soon.
