Thanks to the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless for this information:
RAFT has received a new special $5 million fund to serve households facing a COVID-19-related housing crisis due to a loss of wages or increase in expenses (e.g. medical expenses). See the flyer in both English and Spanish, which includes each regional housing authority’s contact information (where RAFT is accessed).
Learn more about the RAFT program on our website and on Mass.gov. Please note that for RAFT purposes, the definition of “family” includes all household sizes and configurations, such as households with children under 21, unaccompanied youth, elders, and people with disabilities.
