Organisme de Foncier Solidaire de la Métropole Lilloise (OFSML) joined Housing Europe as Partner in June 2019.
Organisme de Foncier Solidaire de la Métropole Lilloise was founded in March 2017 with the aim to provide access to decent and permanently affordable homes. Additionally, the OFSML objectives are to make better use of public grants and to slow down land speculation. The 4 founders were The Foundation of Lille, the City of Lille, the Metropolis of Lille and the federation of developers in the Northern region. 2 new members came on board in March 2018, Union Régionale pour l'Habitat Hauts-de-France and Action Logement. The governance of the OFSML is balanced between public and private members.
