ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Founded in 1994, The American City Coalition grew out of lessons learned from the development of the earliest mixed-income communities in the United States. The inspiration for our work is grounded in the story of Columbia Point, a 1,500-unit public housing project, in Dorchester, MA.
TACC develops integrated approaches that drive public and private resources to work on behalf of low-income residents in undeserved neighborhoods. With one in three Americans in inner cities living in poverty and high concentrations of poverty and insufficient economic opportunity even in neighborhoods of our country’s most successful cities, no one organization can meet the complex needs of residents and communities alone. TACC is committed to bringing together the resources of the private and public sectors to focus on the neighborhoods with the greatest need.
