Congressman McGovern Visits Worcester as Part of Affordable Housing Tour

Thursday, April 07, 2016

 

Congressman Jim McGovern visited Worcester on Thursday to continue his affordable housing tour of Central Massachusetts.
 
“In Worcester and throughout Central Massachusetts, increasing access to affordable housing is critical to building strong communities. The Lofts at Loomworks is a clear example of what we can achieve as we work together toward that goal. By bringing Massachusetts leaders together, we can invest in our local communities and strengthen affordable housing for local residents. I look forward to continuing the critical partnerships that make successes like The Lofts at Loomworks possible as we strengthen access to affordable housing for families in Worcester and throughout Central Massachusetts,” McGovern said.

McGovern in Worcester

Congressman McGovern joined a National Community Development Association (NCDA) event to speak about the need to strengthen investments in affordable housing in Worcester and Massachusetts communities.

Following the event, McGovern joined local leaders at a ribbon cutting for the grand opening of The Lofts at Loomworks. The

The Lofts are a 94 unit mixed income community in Worcester. The Loomworks project is a $27 million, two phase development which created 175-200 new construction jobs in the area.

Wednesday's events in Worcester are part of McGovern's ongoing work to promote equitable affordable housing, enhance economic competiveness and build upon community assets to create affordable, economically vital, and sustainable communities throughout Central Mass.

Previous Stop

The visit to Worcester followed followed Tuesday's visit to Linwood Mill Apartments in Northbridge, which received $60,100 in federal low-income tax credits for redevelopment of the textile mill to create 75 units of affordable elderly rental housing.
