Workforce Housing Relief Fund and Homelessness Prevention
If you need assistance to stay housed, call (508) 771-5400 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to talk through your situation and identify any funding programs or services that may be available to you.
Even if you’ve never qualified for public assistance, don’t be afraid to ask for help now. There are many new government programs available and our local community has stepped up with donations to our new Workforce Housing Relief Fund.
As of April 28, we’ve raised $700,500 of a $1.5 Million goal for the Workforce Housing Relief Fund.
These funds will enable us to support more than 300 families over several months as their households and the community recovers. Funding comes from towns and foundations, as well as individual donors. 100% of donations from individuals is passed through directly to make housing payments for our neighbors.
Housing Assistance is also the regional administrator for RAFT (Residential Assistance for Families in Transition) funding and private homeless prevention programs all of which can provide payments to help keep you safely housed. These programs, as well as the Workforce Housing Relief Fund use the same application.
