Subsidized restricted income rental housing you won’t find anywhere else

Rural America

re: 51 Subsidized Properties and APPLICATIONS NOT AVAILABLE ANYWHERE

We’ve heard that agencies serving rural parts of the state have  great affordable housing opportunities, now here is proof. This info comes to us from a database source that has the applications you can file.

This December 12 2017 report 
shows listings for subsidized housing where you pay 30% income for rent anywhere within 100 miles of Brookline, MA.  The status of the addresses are listed, however you’ll have to contact the individual locations for the latest status.

Housingworks  says you WON’T FIND certain subsidized buildings or applications if you look in the MassHousing ‘White Book’, apply to a Housing Authority, or use MassAccess.

(They are financed by the US Dept. of Agriculture (!) and are situated in smaller towns rather than big cities. The wait for some of these is shorter than the wait for properties in big cities.)

These properties are about 60%  for elders and persons with disability of any age, and 40% properties for families. Some have a priority for Veterans, but most are just first come first serve.

Where 6,000 Boston AirBnB rental and short corporate properties squeeze out neighborhood renters.

6000 AirBnB rentals in Boston

Colleen Fitzpatrick at the Fenway Community Development Corporation held an informative AirBnB public forum on October 17th.


Download our latest Lottery Lead Package dated Oct 28th for new chances to win.


The problem is as many see it, properties owner greed and expenses are covered by AirBnb and  Corporations when they pay owners top dollars per day for properties reliable tenants have been renting for years. Tenant leases terminate, prices rise, or the leases are not renewed, so out they go and in comes AirBnb and Corporate guests.

Its a vicious circle.

 

The City of Boston benefits because real estate taxes rises. Property owners benefits from more revenue. Renters are screwed.

What does Housing Works Do?

4 organizations that have affordable housing and cheap rental apartment lottery opportunities in Boston and Massachusetts.

dance with grace

Affordable Housing Lottery Opportunities in Massachusetts and Boston.

Getting into one is a strategic  dance, like that of the expert ballerina in photo.
( file photo: Misty Copeland, JFK Library book tour, August 2017)

These three  organizations listed below ( see links ) and the one apartment developer advertise a lot of affordable, income-restricted  rental and ownership product to the market.

The City of Boston stated in a report to the Chamber of Commerce yesterday that the mayor’s administration has provided over 8,000 low and moderate income ( new) living spaces recently.

But, according to  our sources, 60,000 people are on a waiting list across the state for “subsidized housing.”

Low income. Moderate income. Affordable. Subsidized. Luck. Advocate:  all words to describe the need.  People are winning the lottery who can only afford the lottery.

And, when a person leaves one affordable unit for another newer affordable unit, there is a vacancy to be filled in that affordable space they left.

But, there there is just not enough affordable housing stock to go around and  meet everyone’s needs, unfortunately.

City of Cambridge Community Development Department – ya’ll know who this is. COC is right across the river from Boston. Its an expensive town to live in, unless of course you get the cheap apartment, housing, affordable living space deal
