In Memory of Amy Anthony

MACDC joins with others in the Affordable Housing community to mourn the passing of Amy Anthony.  Amy was a giant in our field who led the Executive Office of Community Development under Governor Michael Dukakis and subsequently founded and led the Preservation of Affordable Housing.  She was a visionary leader who put in place many of the policies, programs and organizations that make Massachusetts a national leader in affordable housing. She also played a major role in the growth of the CDC movement in Massachusetts by helping to create dozens of CDCs during the 1980s that continue to serve their communities to this day.  Her legacy will last for decades to come.
