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

    Watch MAHA's Closing the Gap Video

    Over twenty years ago, community groups, banks, and public officials came together to create an affordable mortgage program to respond to the 1989 Federal Reserve Bank of Boston study on racial disparities. 17,000 sustainable mortgages later, the ONE Mortgage is working to close the still stubbornly high racial homeownership gap in Massachusetts.

    Earned Sick Time Ballot Question Surges to Big Victory

    On a night when the race for Governor swung back and forth, voters gave a resounding YES to Question 4 which will give more than one million workers access to paid sick time on the job.

    MAHA endorsed Question 4, our staff and volunteers collected signatures to help get it on the ballot, and our volunteers made thousands of calls over the last few weeks to urge MAHA members and graduates to vote yes. Nearly 60% of voters statewide supported earned sick time and, in Boston, nearly 75% voted yes.

    MAHA congratulates Governor-elect Charlie Baker, Attorney General-elect Maura Healey, and Treasurer-elect Deb Goldberg. We look forward to working with each of them to help more low and moderate income homebuyers access the best mortgages and to close the racial homeownership gap in Massachusetts.
