    • About

      Spare Change News is the nation’s oldest street newspaper. Since 1992, we have been covering issues other Boston media often ignore—inequality, homelessness, culture and resistance.

      The paper comes out every other Friday. Homeless and low-income vendors buy our paper for 35¢ and sell it for $1, using the profits they earn to supplement other sources of income.

      We are published by the Homeless Empowerment Project, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit.
