Baker-Polito Administration Announces Nearly $50 Million to Advance 1,474 Housing Units in 16 Communities

 

$50 million in direct funding and nearly $90 million in state and federal tax credits will support 26 projects featuring 384 units for very low-income and vulnerable populations

 

FALMOUTH – Today, the Baker-Polito Administration announced nearly $50 million in direct funding and $89 million in state and federal housing tax credits to support the preservation and development of 1,474 total units across 26 projects. Awarded projects will provide 1,326 affordable units for individuals and families, including 384 units reserved for very low-income residents in 16 communities.
 
“Housing remains a top priority for our administration and we are proud of the amounts of funding we have committed to affordable housing production as well as the work we have done with our partners in the Legislature to pass major zoning reform and dedicate federal recovery dollars to housing production of all kinds,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “As we combat the housing crisis, we will continue to champion production of affordable rental, homeownership, transit-oriented housing, and market-rate housing units in every corner of the Commonwealth so that across Massachusetts, more residents can access housing they can afford.”

“Congratulations to our partners on the Cape celebrating two new housing projects that will transform underutilized parcels into mixed-income housing to help ease the area’s housing shortage,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Across the Commonwealth, today’s awards will create and preserve nearly 1,500 units, providing new homes for residents in every region of our state.”

Lt. Governor Karyn Polito joined Housing and Community Development Undersecretary Jennifer Maddox, representatives from Affirmative Investments, and local officials to announce the awards in Falmouth. With substantial state and local support, Affirmative Investments will undertake the construction of Scranton Main, featuring 48 new affordable housing units for seniors. The development will provide supportive services to residents, feature commercial space, and reserve 16 units for very low-income seniors.
 
In nearby Orleans, Pennrose Development will transform a vacant commercial building into 62 new mixed-income multifamily and individual units, including 52 deed-restricted affordable units with support from the Town of Orleans and surrounding towns.

The Department of Housing and Community Development provides a combination of direct subsidies, state and federal tax credits, and other resources to support the creation and preservation of affordable housing through multiple funding rounds each year. Today’s awards represent the largest funding round of 2022 and include housing for seniors, families, and individuals.
 
“Addressing the strained housing supply in Massachusetts is necessary for our continued economic prosperity, as ensuring affordable housing options for workers means that employers can continue to attract and retain talent here,” said Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy. “Our administration has worked closely with municipalities to design programs like MassWorks, Housing Choice, and our One-Stop program to fuel local housing production, and we are thrilled to build on those efforts today by funding 26 transformative housing projects across the state.
 
“Massachusetts is home to an incredibly talented ecosystem of non-profits, housing developers, advocates, and builders, and DHCD is eager to continue expanding opportunities for housing development in every region,” said Housing and Community Development Undersecretary Jennifer Maddox. “With our partners at MassHousing, Mass Housing Partnership, and CEDAC, we are increasing capacity to offer technical assistance offering more programs for projects of different sizes to meet the varied needs of our 351 cities and towns.”

“As ever-increasing housing prices push families and seniors out of their homes, it’s critical that we develop new affordable housing projects to maintain the sustainability of our local communities,” said State Representative Dylan Fernandes. “Scranton and Main will provide dozens of Falmouth seniors with the housing security and resources necessary to continue living on the Cape, and I am deeply grateful to the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development and the Town of Falmouth for their commitment to this crucial project.”

“This project will provide 48 units of affordable rental housing in an ideal location,” said Acting Falmouth Town Manager Peter Johnson-Staub. “It is critically important that we move quickly to generate more affordable housing. The Commonwealth, the Town of Falmouth, and the Falmouth Housing Corporation have all stepped up to move this project forward quickly. We know that urgent action is needed and hope to build on this success.”

“Affirmative Investments and Falmouth Housing Corporation were so happy to host the Commonwealth today and are very thankful for the support of the Baker-Administration and the Town of Falmouth in bringing 48 incredibly energy efficient affordable senior housing units in a prime location across from the Town’s brand new senior center,” said Affirmative Investments Executive Vice President Tara Mizrahi. “We cannot wait to begin construction!”
 
The Baker-Polito Administration has shown a deep commitment to increasing the production of housing across all income levels. Since 2015, the administration has invested more than $1.5 billion in the affordable housing ecosystem, resulting in the production and preservation of more than 24,000 housing units, including more than 21,000 affordable units. In 2018, Governor Baker signed the largest housing bond bill in Massachusetts history, committing more than $1.8 billion to the future of affordable housing production and preservation.
 
Last week, Lt. Governor Polito announced this year’s Permanent Supportive Housing Awards in Worcester with Secretary Kennealy, Undersecretary Maddox, and local officials to advance 237 permanent supportive housing units and 200 shelter beds for vulnerable populations.
