Mayor Announces Major Victory for City Rent Subsidy Coalition

After years of advocating for renters across the city of Boston, MAHT celebrated a major victory January 7, 2020 at Mayor Martin J. Walsh's annual State of the City Address. 

Acknowledging the ever-growing housing crisis, the mayor announced Boston’s first ever city-funded rental vouchers so more low-income families can be stable and secure. The program is a 5 million dollar pilot that will save the homes of many across the city!

This announcement is a direct result of the advocacy efforts of MAHT over the course of years and their leading role in the City Rent Subsidy Coalition.

This was a truly magnificent start to the decade!
