MAHA educates and mobilizes across Massachusetts to break down barriers to affordable and sustainable homeownership.

    Vote for Governor, Attorney General and Treasurer TODAY 7AM-8PM

    Yes, Labor Day just happened. But today, on September 9th from 7AM until 8PM, voters will narrow down the list of candidates vying for statewide office.

    Voters will choose a Democrat and Republican candidate for the major statewide offices to face off in November. Don't leave that decision to someone else.

    MAHA and our non-profit partners in the Homeownership Action Network asked the four candidates for State Treasurer two questions about responsible lending. Read the candidate guide here. And their full answers here.

    Remember: No one knows who you vote for, but everyone knows who votes. Politicians keep track of which individuals vote consistently, and which neighborhoods have the highest turn out. So don't give up the power and influence you gain by voting! Then work together through MAHA and other organizations to hold the winning candidates accountable for delivering on their campaign promises.

    Twenty-six Mortgage Lenders, Over 1,000 First Time Homebuyers Utilize Mass Homeownership Compact in its First Six Months

    Dorchester – Friday, June 13, 2014 – Governor Deval Patrick today stood with MAHA President Esther Maycock-Thorne, recent MAHA homeowner Angelina Goncalves, and newly elected state reprentative Evandro Carvalho to announce new support for homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers across the Commonwealth, including the production of new affordable homes and access to reduced-cost mortgages through various lenders. The announcement comes as 26 mortgage lenders and over 1,000 first time homebuyers have signed on and utilized the Mass Homeownership Compact, a commitment among lenders to originate mortgage loans to first-time home buyers with household incomes below the area median income.

    “Investing in housing generates jobs, grows local businesses and strengthens our communities,” said Governor Patrick. “Supporting reasonably priced housing for moderate and middle income families, along with our strategy of investing in education, innovation and infrastructure, will fuel sustainable long term economic growth.”
