The Kelsey’s co-founder and CEO, Micaela Connery, and Housing Development Manager, Katie McAuley, visited Martha’s Vineyard to host a series of community engagement events, culminating in a Disability-Forward Housing Convening. The Convening was hosted in partnership with Martha’s Vineyard Inclusive Communities (MVIC), a local group of resident advocates who are organizing for more inclusive housing developments. The MVIC and The Kelsey will continue their work together via a Technical Assistance contract to propose a gentle-density, mixed-income housing development on the island.

The VITAL Act, Visitable Inclusive Tax Credits Act for Accessible Living, has been introduced in the United States Senate. If enacted, the bill would increase investment in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) and ensure that developers are building more accessible, affordable housing.
The Kelsey’s COO, Caroline Bas, and Director of Field and Capacity Building, Fatimah Aure, published a piece in Shelterforce about why designing for diverse accessibility needs benefits everyone.
