Welcome Home, Boston
Mayor Michelle Wu and the City Council have allotted $58 million in American Rescue Plan (ARPA) funding to fast track the production of new affordable homes through Welcome Home, Boston.
Welcome Home, Boston has four phases currently being executed or planned, but more phases may be added.
The Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) will be designating developers to build Phase 1 homes in mid-October 2023. MOH has issued the Request for Proposals (RFP) for Phase 2. Phase 3 is on target to offer another 20 parcels of land in Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury to be developed into affordable homeownership. The RFP is expected to be released in early January 2024.
