MassHousing Provides $23M in Affordable Housing Financing for Mattapan MF Community

MassHousing has provided $22.6 million in affordable housing financing to the Planning Office for Urban Affairs and the Caribbean Integration Community Development (CICD) for the construction of the 76-unit Cote Village housing community in Mattapan.

The Planning Office for Urban Affairs and CICD will utilize the MassHousing financing to transform a long-vacant city-owned parcel into an inclusive new affordable housing community, which will house formerly homeless residents, low-income working families, and middle-income households. The new housing is being developed on the site of the former Cote Ford dealership, which has been unused for three decades.

“This is a real win for Mattapan,” said Donald Alexis, president of the CICD. “Our goal was to create housing that reflects the needs of the working-class residents in Mattapan, and I believe we’ve accomplished that here.”
