Framingham, Marlborough to benefit from affordable housing funds

FRAMINGHAM/MARLBOROUGH

Framingham and Marlborough will be getting some help with affordable housing.

Tax credits and grants totaling $85 million will go to support 26 affordable rental developments in 17 communities in the state, Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey announced yesterday.

The completed developments will provide 1,203 rental apartments, 1,089 of which will be affordable for low- and moderate-income working families.

Six of the developments will be in Boston, and others will be built in Framingham, Marlborough, Amherst, Cambridge, Fitchburg, Great Barrington, Lawrence, Leominster, Lowell, Mashpee, Middleborough, Northampton, Quincy, Salem, Springfield, and Westfield.
