Compass to launch housing policy innovation pilot in Cambridge

This winter, in partnership with Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA), Compass will launch a pilot project to test the impact of automatically providing all residents of a public housing development with a special savings account, into which CHA will deposit half of any increased rent that the resident pays as a result of increased earnings. Check out this blog post from our partners at Abt Associates to learn more about the program and its potential to reshape the experience of subsidized housing programs for many low-income families.
