PROGRAMS
Fostering collaboration to promote
new housing
Village at Old Main in Falmouth
Expanding the supply of housing requires thoughtful
planning and collaboration. MassHousing’s role
involves more than providing financing. We also
carefully review development proposals submitted
through Chapter 40B and provide cities and towns
with additional technical capacity to implement
their own housing production goals and deliver new
mixed-income housing.
