Eviction Moratorium Ends

The Supreme Court has ended the eviction moratorium. If you are behind on rent or mortgage payments, apply for assistance today. Since the pandemic began, Housing Assistance has quickly and effectively distributed more than $4 Million in financial assistance to those who qualify–when other areas of our country have struggled to efficiently process applications. No one can afford to lose their housing when there are so few rentals available. Apply today.

Housing is the Foundation

Housing Assistance Corporation offers housing programs and services throughout Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. We operate four family homeless shelters; provide outreach services to people living on the streets and in the woods; offer financial assistance to prevent homelessness; build new housing; manage nearly 1,200 rental vouchers; and provide foreclosure and reverse mortgage counseling as well as financial literacy and housing advocacy workshops.
Our vision is a community in which everyone is stably housed so that they can live the life they want to live and contribute to a thriving year-round community.
Our mission is two-fold: to deliver housing and services that meet the needs of our local community and limit our impact on natural resources; and to engage in responsible economic development that generates jobs, stabilizes housing and strengthens the community.

SUCCESS STORY

New Home Gives Cataumet Client Hope for Future

“Everything I have now is because of Housing Assistance,” Vanessa said. “I don’t think I would be the same person I am now without them.”

After spending 18 months in shelter, Vanessa and her son were able to successfully transition into one of our apartments at High Meadow Townhomes which we completed in the fall of 2018. More than a year later, Vanessa has stability and hope for what the future will bring.
