MAHA educates and mobilizes across Massachusetts to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.
DORCHESTER – Monday, June 10, 2013 – Governor Deval Patrick today kicked-off Commonwealth Housing Week by announcing a new compact that creates a goal of providing 10,000 mortgage loans to first-time homebuyers over the next five years. The Home Ownership Compact includes a commitment among lenders to originate a specific number of mortgage loans to first-time home buyers with household incomes below the area median income through the MassHousing and the Massachusetts Housing Partnership programs.
“By giving more young people and families the opportunity to own a home, we retain our talent pool and create sustainable long term economic growth,” said Governor Patrick.
The Massachusetts Homeownership Compact will help accelerate economic recovery and neighborhood stabilization initiatives in the Commonwealth and retain and attract a competitive workforce.
"We couldn’t have purchased our home without Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance’s first-time homebuyer program, support from our family, a great mortgage product and a wonderful loan officer," said Rashida Constantine, a Dorchester homeowner and MAHA member. "It was an empowering experience that sets an important example for our kids."
