The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), outlined $14 billion in flexible funds to MA. For housing-related initiatives those dollars have primarily gone to programs such as Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, and more. The fight for using ARPA dollars for housing is not over!
Westford has received renewed ARPA funding to assist financially qualified households with mortgage/rent/utility payments. The funding is limited and applications are considered on a first come, first served basis. If you have questions about the program or want to apply, call Alison at 978.399.2325
