Matthew Reilly on the Garden State’s affordable housing prowess
Our northeastern neighbors in Connecticut are getting around to wrestling with urban/suburban affordable housing issues. The South Central Regional Council of Government (SCROG) recently voted unanimously to establish a committee that would work to develop a 15-town strategy to tackle affordable housing.
President & CEO Matthew Reilly reflects on
MEND’s 50th anniversary.

launch a year-long celebration for MEND’s 50th anniversary! Much has
changed in the last half-century, but one thing has remained the same – our
commitment to providing good, decent, hard-working people with a safe and
secure place to call home.
