CMSC Calls for More Affordable Housing

January 23, 2023

CMSC’s Executive Director, Michelle McCabe, spoke on behalf of downtowns during a recent press conference calling for more affordable housing hosted by Desegregate CT. 

“If people are spending all of their money on transportation and on housing, then that means that they have fewer resources to invest back in our communities and invest back in our main streets,” said Michelle McCabe, the Executive Director of the CT Main Street Center.
