Mass. Senior Housing Complex Gets $8.9 Million HUD Loan to Stay Affordable

A senior housing community in Braintree, Mass. is getting a loan from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) designed to make sure the complex can remain affordable for low- and moderate-income seniors, reports Wicked Local Braintree.

The $8.9 million loan is for the 100-unit Logan Park community and was awarded in June; it will help finance a reserve account to cover future maintenance needs and is funded through MassHousing’s Section 8 Proactive Preservation Program. 

MassHousing is an independent state authority that raises money through selling bonds and using the proceeds to help finance affordable housing projects. The Logan Park complex was in danger of converting to market-rate units after its original 30-year deed restriction expired. Under the terms of the Section 8 loan, all of its units, which are currently all affordable, will continue to receive state subsidies, with 20 units set aside for low-income tenants. 

Logan Park has 25 studio units and 75 one-bedroom units, along with a community room, a kitchen, laundry facilities, and an on-site beauty salon.
