In November, the Center for Community Capital hosted a convening for field partners working to integrate financial capability work with affordable housing, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, and Prosperity Now.
The convening was meant to help field partners learn from each other about how integrating financial capability services in affordable housing can empower residents’ financial health. In attendance were representatives from the New York City Office of Financial Empowerment, CHN Housing Network, the Resurrection Project, and many others. The Center is currently working with these partners to evaluate their ongoing efforts to integrate financial capability services with their affordable housing programs. Be on the lookout for more work on this topic in 2018!
