The high cost of housing in Boston is a significant concern for many residents. As a city, we must focus on implementing policies that increase the housing supply, reduce barriers to building new homes, and incentivize developers to build more affordable units.
William is committed to finding solutions to make it easier for people in our city to find and stay in safe, affordable, and secure housing.
If elected, William will:
Push to build more affordable and middle-income units across the city, specifically focusing on family-centered multi-bedroom units.
Work to stabilize the ever-rising cost of rent by increasing rental assistance programs and strengthening tenant protections.
Expand the city's first-time home buyer programs, which offer opportunities for residents to qualify for low mortgage rates when purchasing their first home.
