Grant/Date: 2018 Project Grant Recipient
Priyanka Sen is a designer, historian, and educator with an expertise in architecture. Her passion for affordable housing and community service first emerged during her time as a CommonwealthCorps member in Boston, where she worked as a social housing assistant at a nonprofit that helped place homeless individuals with HIV/AIDS into safe, stable housing situations. Priyanka’s project VOUCHed reimagines the Section 8 or Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) process through a new visual format. This graphic pamphlet acts as a visual roadmap to the HCV process, including key application and submittal dates on a timeline, and visual infographics of resources and agencies that assist in the application.
