Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced more than $25 million in funds to help build more than 335 housing units for the homeless, veterans and very low-income seniors and families.
The state is rapidly working to reduce the number of homeless families living in hotels and motels. Patrick also handed out more than 200 new housing vouchers, which are part of the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program. These vouchers enable homeless families to relocate into existing housing developments with long-term affordability restrictions.
