BOSTON – The City of Quincy was recently selected as the recipient of a $232,645 grant intended to fund incentives, rewards, technical assistance and targeted legislative reform in municipalities’ efforts to plan and build new and diverse housing stock.
The funds the city has received through the grant will go toward costs associated with the planned pedestrian infrastructure improvements in North Quincy.
The state’s Housing Choice Community Grant Program rewards municipalities that have produced a significant number of housing units in the last five years and that have adopted or established best practices that encourage housing production. The grant awards appropriations of up to $250,000.
The program provides funding to designated Housing Choice Communities for construction, modernization, or major repair of physical infrastructure, acquisition of property or interests in property; long-lived equipment; or feasibility, engineering or schematic designs for capital projects, and for planning and zoning projects.
