MassHousing Provides $700K in COVID-19 Relief for Affordable Sober Housing

MassHousing has awarded $700,000 in grant funding to bring COVID-19 relief to 31 non-profit providers of affordable sober housing, to help ensure their financial stability and continued support services for more than 660 men, women and women with children working to overcome addiction in 17 communities across the state of Massachusetts.

The grants, which were up to $25,000 to non-profit affordable sober housing providers who had previously received financing from MassHousing, came from CCRI, a subsidiary of MassHousing.

“The COVID-19 crisis has particularly impacted the lives of some of our most vulnerable citizens and the economic stability of the many non-profit organizations that provide vital sober housing and support services to people fighting addiction around the Commonwealth,” said MassHousing executive director Chrystal Kornegay.

“Many residents have lost their jobs and cannot pay rent, and many non-profit organizations are struggling to meet their financial obligations due to reduced rental income and increased operating costs connected to the pandemic.”
