Article by Hammerman Published by Boston Fed Bank

The Boston Fed Reserve Bank’s recently published Winter Issue of Communities & Banking includes an article by DOF President & CEO Charles Hammerman entitled “The Disability Housing Market in New England”. Mr. Hammerman notes that although New England states have been very progressive in deinstitutionalization, especially when compared to other regions of the country, the increased demand for residential services and current economic climate threaten to undermine past accomplishments. New spending models are needed and the DOF offers one such solution.
