On Housing


Housing in the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex district comes in many forms. From established older neighborhoods to brand new subdivisions, homeless shelters to multi-million dollar real estate, the needs and circumstances of housing in the district vary dramatically. Decent and affordable housing is a basic human need, vital to strong families and communities.
  • Especially in a time of declining home sales and a weak economy, state support for first time homebuyers and aid in avoiding foreclosures that damage neighborhoods are critically important.
  • The chronic shortage of affordable rentals calls for innovative and effective solutions, promoting the production of new housing, along smart growth lines, the preservation of so-called expiring use units, and the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program.
  • A permanent, stable home in which to live is a basic right of all people, including children, and persons with physical or mental disabilities, HIV/AIDS, and victims of abuse or violence. Adequate day care, job training, and supportive social services are also needed to eradicate the persistent problem of homelessness.
