Great Barrington has secured a $3.2 million MassWorks grant to pay for infrastructure work at a planned affordable housing development on North Plain Road in Housatonic.
The project, a collaboration between the town and Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, will include 19 affordable, energy efficient homes on a 7.25-acre site. The state funds will cover the costs of road construction, sewer, water and stormwater infrastructure.
The MassWorks Infrastructure Program is a competitive grant program that provides state funds to support and accelerate housing production and other economic development efforts.

Governor Karyn Polito, Undersecretary of Community Development Ashley Stolba and MassDevelopment President and CEO Dan Rivera were joined by state and local officials in Pittsfield today to announce a total of more than $143 million in grant awards to support 337 local economic development projects in 169 communities.
