US HUD distributes federal HOME funds across the country to use for affordable housing projects. Middleborough is part of a municipal consortium that joins several communities together to qualify for these funds. The lead agency for the group is the City of Taunton.
This consortium-the Greater Attleboro Taunton HOME Consortium (GATHC) -receives applications for funds from developers who are seeking gap financing to create affordable housing or special needs housing, and from eligible homeowners needing housing rehabilitation assistance in any of the consortium communities. Visit the ECD at the City of Taunton for further information on applying. Organizations wishing to become affordable housing developers using HOME funds are encouraged to contact ECD.
