We are pleased to share with you the stories of some of the people, places and achievements that made our 2018 fiscal year a success. We provided more than $1.2 billion in financing for home mortgages and rental housing, in FY'18, bringing our cumulative financing across the Commonwealth since making our first loan in 1970 to nearly $23 billion.
Boston Public Schools Police Officer and longtime renter Latisha Steele used an affordable MassHousing Mortgage with Down Payment Assistance to buy her first home, at the MassHousing-financed Olmsted Green in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood.
MassHousing financing is ensuring that affordability remains in place at Burbank Apartments in Boston's Fenway neighborhood. The original mortgage was set to expire, and vulnerable residents at Burbank were at risk of being displaced.
MassHousing’s 2018 Community Services Conference brought together 400 professionals from housing, social services, public health, academia and elder affairs for a day-long series of talks, workshops and conversations about how to better serve the growing population of older adults in Massachusetts.
Older Adults in Community was held in June 2018 in partnership with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs.
