Location: Boston
Posted on: February 16, 2020

Job Description:

BACKGROUNDWhile housing prices have climbed to record highs in Greater Boston, home values in Gateway Cities remain below 2006 levels. With continued low housing values, the cost of maintenance can exceed home values and lead to increasing disrepair and eventually abandoned properties. In the Gateway Cities of Fall River, Fitchburg, Holyoke, and Pittsfield more than one in ten housing units is vacant. Research has shown that high vacancy rates negatively affect neighborhoods, leading to depressed property values, increased crime, a reduction in local tax revenue, and increased public health hazards. In January of 2019, a study commissioned by MassINC and MACDC, Building Communities of Promise and Possibility, identified the need for, and outlined the potential components of, a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization strategy.--THE NEIGHBORHOOD HUBThe Neighborhood Hub is a new initiative to support local housing markets in Gateway Cities across the Commonwealth. The Hub is a multi-agency partnership that includes: MassHousing, MassDevelopment, Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC), the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassInc), and the Commonwealth's Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).The primary goal of the program is to stabilize neighborhoods with a high rate of vacant, abandoned, and blighted properties in Gateway Cities.
