Boston – November 11, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Baker-Polito Administration awarded a total of $55,000 in Planning Assistance Toward Housing (PATH) grants to Brookline, Gloucester, and Methuen, to help these communities meet their housing needs.

The PATH program manages $600,000 in grant funding to help communities expand housing opportunities through community-initiated activities on municipally-owned sites; through changes to land use and zoning; through planning for housing and mixed-use development in specific geographic areas; and through the implementation of strategies identified in DHCD-approved Housing Production Plans

Competitive grant applications are scored by DHCD staff and sent to the PRC for final approval. DHCD accepts grant applications on a rolling basis.
