Miguel joined Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development. There, he designed a tool aimed at tracking the hard costs of affordable housing construction during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also helped provide a comprehensive policy update to the Acquisition Opportunity Program’s Request for Proposals notice. Miguel’s work has facilitated monitoring COVID-19 impacts on the City’s affordable housing development portfolio as well as applying practical policy solutions to protect more Boston residents from displacement and gentrification.
