Massachusetts Subsidized Housing Inventory
September 5, 2023
Massachusetts requires every town in the state to have 10% Affordable Housing. The SHI lists every town in Massachusetts along with their percentage of affordable housing.
Congratulations to Great Barrington for crossing the 10% threshold! Williamstown also made a marginal increase. And Becket finally got on the scoreboard because of Construct’s work.
That’s the only good news. Several of our towns, including Lenox, Lee, Sheffield, Williamstown and Stockbridge decreased their Affordable Housing Inventory.
Many of our towns stayed at 0% affordable housing.
There are 32 towns and cities within Berkshire County — 16 of them have no affordable housing.
