This project assisted the Massachusetts Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) in addressing the ongoing home foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts. This was done by gathering data into an organized Data Collection and Management System to analyze trends in wrongful foreclosures in the state. The Data System includes a set of Guides for Public Data Collection, a functioning database created with SQL code, and data that has been gathered from public sources and imported using Python scripts. We also developed a guide for the future development of the system. The project also helped to develop an initial relationship between WPI and MAAPL and built the foundation for future IQP teams to continue this work.
