  • Expanding the supply of affordable housing for lower income renters and owners, including first-time home buyers.
  • Serving the needs of the homeless community and partnering with homeless service providers.
  • Providing impartial, unbiased investigation services for discrimination complaints in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodation to any person who believes they have been discriminated against.
