Designation of Regional Moving to Work Demonstration

Both Boston and Cambridge face an unprecedented housing and economic opportunity crisis that, without immediate intervention, will result in significant loss of public and other affordable housing units as well as lost opportunities by low and moderate income households for meaningful participation in the economic growth taking place in the region.

The Boston Housing Authority and Cambridge Housing Authority have met to explore the benefits of seeking Regional Moving To Work (MTW) designation for low-income families and seniors in our community; it offers an extraordinary opportunity to address a range of housing and service needs that cannot be met without the program flexibility offered by MTW.
