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.

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.
