Habitat for Humanity Returns to Acton!

265 Great Rd, Acton

Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts is pleased to being rehabilitating a home in the Town of Acton. We negotiated a very good price for an existing home in the Acton Meadows development at 263 Great Road (the current address of the house is 265 but when the development is finished it will be 263A) with Steve Steinberg of Acton Properties.  We are in the process of transforming an 80-year-old two bedroom house into an updated three bedroom, Energy Star-rated home as part of the larger development at Acton Meadows.

Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts is also pleased to announce that the Board of Selectman for Acton approved a $60,000 grant proposed by the Acton Community Housing Corporation to help with the project at Acton Meadows. We have also received a Federal Home Loan Bank grant of $30,000.  The balance of funds (approximately $70,000) needed for the project will be raised from individuals, corporations, faith communities and through other grants.

We are seeking volunteers interested in helping Habitat with fund raising, public relations to promote the project and grant writing.  If you are interested in assisting in these areas, please contact Carolyn Read, Executive Director, at 978-348-2749 x206 or carolyn@ncmhabitat.org.

Habitat is thrilled to be working in Acton again and is grateful for the community support.  Acton is a community that wants to be inclusive of all people, and shows that by their support of Habitat for Humanity.
