Affordable Housing Trust Fund

Revere's Affordable Housing Trust Fund was established in July 2021 following a unanimous vote of the Revere City Council on July 12, 2021. See Council Order 21-172: An Ordinance Establishing an Affordable Housing Trust Fund. This page will be updated regularly as information becomes available.

Municipal Affordable Housing Trust Funds

Municipal affordable housing trusts allow municipalities to collect funds for affordable housing, segregate them out of the general municipal budget into a trust fund, and utilize these funds for local initiatives to create and preserve affordable housing.  

In Massachusetts, the passage of M.G.L. Chapter 44, Section 55c in 2005 enabled municipalities to begin more actively creating housing trust funds to support the advancement of local affordable housing goals. 

The establishment of a municipal affordable housing trust fund is also listed as a recommendation in Revere’s Next Stop Revere Master Plan, completed in early 2020.
