MassWorks & HousingWorks

The MassWorks Infrastructure Program is a competitive grant program that provides the largest and most flexible source of capital funds to municipalities. It supports public infrastructure projects that accelerate housing production, spur private development, and create jobs throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Part of the Community One Stop for Growth portal, the MassWorks program provides funding for the design, permitting, and construction of improvements to publicly owned infrastructure assets including roadways, intersections, bridges, culverts, utilities, and more. Over the past 10 years, TEC has successfully teamed with many public/private partnerships that have received over $100,000,000 in funding.

New to the One Stop grant this year is the HousingWorks Program. This grant program awards funds based on the project’s nexus with housing, transportation, infrastructure, and community development needs. Like MassWorks, projects that include a local cash match will receive bonus points in application review. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to:

1. Physical infrastructure improvements near public transit stations and residential areas to increase safety, mobility, accessibility, increase alternative modes of transportation, and further support housing.

2. Engineering designs for water and sewer infrastructure improvements that will increase capacity for increased housing production.

3. Improvements to physical public infrastructure near a permitted housing project that will support and yield new and/or additional affordable housing units.

4. Improvements to sidewalks, roads, or other multi-modal infrastructure to increase safety, mobility, and accessibility in the area surrounding housing and adjacent neighborhood(s).

5. Critical upgrades to outdated water, sewer, and other infrastructure to support housing.

Expressions of Interest are being accepted through April 30, 2024 and full applications are due by June 5, 2024. If you would like to discuss the MassWorks and HousingWorks Programs in more detail to see if either are a good opportunity for your community, reach out to TEC today.
