Eastern Bank Provides Financing for Mashpee Affordable Housing Development 

Eastern Bank has provided financing for the LeClair Village Apartments development in Mashpee, MA. Comprising 39 affordable rental units, the project is a collaboration between the Housing Assistance Corporation and Preservation of Affordable Housing, with Eastern Bank serving as a vital financing partner.  

Scheduled for completion in 2025, LeClair Village Apartments will offer one, two, and three-bedroom units to low- and moderate-income households. The bank’s involvement includes a construction loan, permanent financing for ongoing operations, and approximately $10 million in Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit investment.  

“As the housing crisis on the Cape escalates, the need to narrow the affordability gap for low- and moderate-income residents has become more important than ever,” said Aaron Gornstein, president and CEO of Preservation of Affordable Housing.
