Description: The Community Coalition on Race from its very inception has included a strong focus on residential integration: people of different races living in every neighborhood throughout the towns. In 2013, we developed a new loan program for home maintenance and improvement costs. A stable neighborhood is one where residents and potential home-buyers feel confident that their investment is secure. Improved property maintenance contributes to neighborhood stabilization.
