Learn more about MassDREAMS, a new grant program for eligible first-time homebuyers. MORE
We provide a variety of resources related to affordable housing planning and development to communities, Housing Authorities and non-profits.
We can award small grants, engage consultants, or provide staff time. Our team helps communities assess their housing needs and find ways to leverage local resources (funds and land) to increase housing opportunity and help communities control their own housing development destiny.
MHP will engage a qualified consultant to assist the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) in navigating and understanding underlying development issues and impacts as they relate to the process and regulations associated with evaluating a Comprehensive/40B permit. Consultants will also help facilitate productive discussions with developers and in most cases, communities receiving TA from MHP have successfully negotiated comprehensive permits on terms mutually agreeable to both the municipality and developer.
Since 1999, MHP’s 40B technical assistance program has awarded over $2 million and helped 162 communities negotiate 40B projects. Contact MHP Senior Planner Katy Lacy at 857-317-8514 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this program.
