We are pleased to announce as part of the renovation of the property that DHCD is providing 18 MRVP (Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program) subsidies to the project to better serve all income levels.  These are available for 1,2,3 and 4-bedroom homes. We will also have additional affordable housing opportunities for those wishing to apply for our non-subsidized rehab homes. Please note that the MRVP vouchers are project-based which means they are attached to the property and not the resident.  That means should you leave the property for any reason, you cannot take these vouchers with you - they will remain with the property for the next applicable resident. Please note that should you be awarded one of the available project-based MRVP vouchers, you will forfeit any other rental housing subsidies you or any member of your household currently possess.

We will be hosting a Housing Lottery for those individuals who wish to apply for either a MRVP subsidized or non-subsidized home on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at our office located at 11 Sever Street, Worcester, MA 01609 (please note that you need not attend the Lottery for your registration number to be drawn and assigned to one of our available homes).

Individuals wishing to apply for housing and be entered into the Lottery can obtain an application by giving us a call at 508-425-3654 | TTY: 711, emailing us at [email protected] or by visiting our office at 11 Sever Street, Worcester, MA 01609 (Monday-Friday, 8:30am – 5pm). Additionally, individuals with a disability wishing to request a reasonable accommodation to complete the application should contact our office and I will facilitate the necessary arrangements. The deadline to submit your application for the Lottery is 5:00 p.m., Thursday, October 25, 2018 (applications that are mailed in must be RECEIVED in our office on or before the deadline).
