BRicK Partners, together with its colleague Antonio Riley,  has worked with local leaders to create the The ROAD Forward (a Regional Opportunity Area Development Finance Initiative), with the goal of encouraging affordable housing development for families near jobs, transportation, educational opportunities, and other amenities in the Kansas City, Missouri region. BRicK has been honored to help facilitate this collaboration, which includes the Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) of Kansas City and Lee’s Summit, the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), the City of Kansas City, and the LISC and United Way of Greater Kansas City. In consultation with the Missouri Housing Development Commission, these partners will leverage rent subsidies and other financing and leadership to increase the supply of housing options in opportunity areas.
