We’re thrilled to let you know that Gov. Maura Healey visited Housing Assistance headquarters this Thursday – and pledged “historic levels of funding” for housing. Standing before a crowd of state and local officials and Housing Assistance staff and supporters, she announced the Healey-Driscoll administration’s $14 billion capital investment plan for fiscal years 2024-2028. The plan includes $1.5 billion to help finance the construction of hundreds of new, affordable housing opportunities each year across the state – including on the Cape and Islands. The plan also includes the new $97 million HousingWorks program to create new flexible tools for developing affordable housing and preserving and rehabilitating existing stock. The event was held in front of our office in Hyannis, with an exhibit of young children’s drawings with the theme “Home Is Where the Heart Is” in the background. Thanking Housing Assistance for hosting the event, Gov. Healey said, “you do such incredibly critical work in supporting individuals and families on the Cape, and we’re grateful for that.” She also acknowledged Housing Assistance Alisa Magnotta’s efforts as co-chair of the Affordable Abundant Housing Committee, one of the Healey Administration’s six transition committees.
