Resident Empowerment Coalition

The Resident Empowerment Coalition (REC), operating within the Center for Community Engagement and Civil Rights, is designed to strengthen resident engagement through educating and mobilizing residents to support organizing. The main goal of REC is to engage residents in Boston Housing Authority programs, policymaking, and community development opportunities. Ultimately, this engagement will guide residents to make better informed life decisions.  

The Resident Capacity Program provides technical support and training to build the capacity of resident organizations in all BHA public housing properties as well as within the Section 8 Voucher resident community.
