Work Highlights

Updated prior research utilized for PUSH Buffalo’s program funding applications to secure new affordable housing.

Shadowed meetings with PUSH and stakeholders to strengthen my direct knowledge of sustainable housing policy and development.

Produced a memo on the possibility of developing a Permanent Real Estate Cooperative.


Summer Takeaway

There are a lot of people working very hard in each of our communities to make them the vibrant, creative, and kind places they are or could become: we must give them the tools to do the best work possible so that we might all thrive.


Supervisor Quote

We're so excited we got to meet and work with Elijah this summer and wish he was in the office with us, instead of on zoom. He brought great energy and excitement to the work, rolled with changes made to the project, asked good questions, and dug deep into the necessary research for our housing development work.
