Consalvo Calls to Save Boston Housing Program for Elderly

Boston City Council District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo

At Wednesday’s city council meeting,City Councilor Rob Consalvo called for stop gap funding to save the Boston Housing Authority resident services program that assists more than 3,500 low-income, elderly and disabled residents across the city.

“On May 1 the resident services program was ended due to cuts on the federal level that funded the program the and the impact of those cuts are being felt locally,” said District 5 City Councilor Rob Consalvo, during the meeting. “All resident service coordinators were eliminated…” In total, 40 positions are no longer being funded.

“This has a dire and serious impact on Boston people who are still going to live in public housing. [Resident Service Coordinators] work day-to-day to provide help on healthcare, nutritional services, substance abuse help, money management… and to keep people safe and people living a good quality life.”
