MassHousing Awards $73K in Grant Funding for Renovation of Recovery Homes in Metro Boston

MassHousing has awarded a total of $72,750 in grant funding to Link House, Inc. to modernize 65 affordable sober housing units in Salisbury and Amesbury for women and men in recovery.

The grants come from the Center for Community Recovery Innovations, Inc. (CCRI), a nonprofit subsidiary corporation of MassHousing that helps nonprofits create or preserve affordable sober housing in Massachusetts for individuals in recovery. The grants include $45,000 for the Marist Center for Women in Salisbury and $27,750 for the Progress House in Amesbury. Funds will help replace heating systems, roofs and other improvements.

“We are pleased that this CCRI funding will help renovate these two important sober homes in Salisbury and Amesbury for the women and men living there who are working to overcome substance misuse,” said Chrystal Kornegay executive director at MassHousing. “Having a supportive, sober home, is a major factor in overcoming addiction and these two facilities will now be modernized for the residents moving forward.”
