Affordability Extended for Seniors at Massachusetts Development

The affordability of homes for lower-income seniors has been extended for at least 20 years at the 43-unit Casselman House in Newton, Mass. MassHousing has provided $8.1 million in financing to nonprofit Newton Community Development Foundation (NCDF) to help preserve the longtime development. NCDF refinanced Casselman House through MassHousing’s Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP)/Ginnie Mae Joint Venture Initiative with lender partner Rockport Mortgage Corp.
