NeighborWorks Housing Solutions

SPECIAL NOTICE

On March 25th, Governor Baker announced new funding under the Residential Assistance to Families in Transition (RAFT) program. This funding will provide short-term emergency financial assistance for eligible families and individuals to stabilize their situations by assisting with rent, utility bills, and other costs.

This special program targets households facing instability as a result of a COVID-19 (Coronavirus) related housing crisis due to a loss of wages or increase in expenses (e.g., medical expenses).

If you are interested in learning more about the RAFT program, please click here to start the intake waitlist pre-application process. Funds are limited and using the online portal is the quickest way to start the application process. If you are unable to complete the form online, please leave a message on our RAFT hotline at 781.422.4204 and our staff will call back to assist you in the order your message was received.
