Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Abt Associates supported Massachusetts' housing finance agency, MassHousing, in developing a strategic plan to meet the affordable housing needs of the Commonwealth's modest-income residents. MassHousing began the strategic planning process in early 2013 in an effort to learn more about the Commonwealth's changing housing landscape and to identify opportunities that would help it meet its goal. An Abt team led by Kimberly Burnett assisted the planning process by gathering input from more than 200 stakeholders and synthesizing the findings for MassHousing's Board of Directors.
