Housing Assistance helps over 900 households and 650 property owners and pours millions of dollars into the local economy by administering housing vouchers across the region. We provide rental assistance using federal and Massachusetts state subsidies for people throughout Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. This, in turn, allows property owners to pay their mortgage and enables our workforce to continue to live on Cape Cod.
