Maura Healey on Budget & Economy

 

 


Dealing with a housing shortage that's decades in the making

We tripled tax credits for new housing and increased low-income housing credits. We funded 1,000 new rental vouchers and identified surplus public land for new homes. These steps will make a difference. But we're dealing with a housing shortage that's decades in the making.

To get costs down, we have to go big, and we have to do it now. That means passing our $4 billion Affordable Homes Act--the most ambitious housing plan in Massachusetts history.

Stimulus checks cannot be seized by debt collectors

[On COVID relief checks]: "These stimulus payments must go directly to help struggling people and families pay for housing, food, utilities and other basic needs, and not into the hands of debt collectors," AG Healey said. "We are issuing this guidance to put the debt collection industry on notice and to make sure consumers are aware of their rights under the law."
