Donations in Support of Affordable Housing Efforts
The corporation’s mission includes the support of efforts to create awareness about the need for affordable housing in the region. President Nolan sums up the importance of this mission as follows: “The health of our community depends on a strong and diversified local economy. A strong local economy depends on the presence of a diverse workforce capable of filling positions at all pay and skill levels. The presence of a diverse workforce depends on the presence in the region of a range of housing choices, including the availability of affordable housing.”
To further this mission, the Corporation has made financial donations to local organizations in support of efforts to address the need for affordable housing and strengthen the local economy. The Corporation has donated funding to the Danbury Housing Partnership, Project Homeless Connect, CityCenter Danbury and other local organization seeking to create a vibrant and diverse community.
