On behalf of CHAPA and the Regional Housing Network of Massachusetts, thank you to all those who attended the RAFT webinar on Wednesday, May 20. A special thanks to all our speakers and panelists for sharing their expertise!
As an immediate follow-up, we’ve posted the webinar recording online for you to access and share.
Also, here are links to materials from the meeting:
- Agenda & Speaker Information
- Housing Consumer Education Centers COVID-19 Housing Resources
- Department of Housing and Community Development’s (DHCD’s) General RAFT Info Flyer
- DHCD’s RAFT Policy Changes during COVID-19 Flyer
Thank you for all the questions submitted during the webinar. Although we did not get to all of them during the event, we are preparing a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document to provide responses to many of the questions. We will share the FAQ when it is completed.
In the meantime, if you would like to find which organization offers RAFT in your community, please use this city/town lookup tool.
Finally, we need your help to increase funding for RAFT! Please contact your state legislators to ask them to support providing a $50 million emergency appropriation for RAFT and to make program changes to help serve more residents across Massachusetts who have fallen behind on their rent or mortgages because of COVID-19. Learn how to take action to expand RAFT!
