Grants to Massachusetts municipalities and other public agencies for capital public infrastructure improvement projects. Additional funding is available to small towns for road and bridge repairs and construction. Funding is intended for projects that accelerate and support housing production, spur private development, and create jobs throughout the Commonwealth. Applicants are advised to apply only for projects that are shovel ready, meaning prepared to begin construction within the next construction season.
Per M.G.L.ch.23A§63, the primary purpose of the MassWorks Program is: to issue grants to municipalities and other public instrumentalities for design, construction, building, land acquisition, rehabilitation, repair and other improvements to publicly-owned infrastructure including, but not limited to, sewers, utility extensions, streets, roads, curb-cuts, parking, water treatment systems, telecommunications systems, transit improvements, public parks and spaces within urban renewal districts, and pedestrian and bicycle ways.
In the 2019 MassWorks Round, EOHED is seeking to increase its investments in projects that help to advance the Commonwealth’s housing production goals, particularly in communities using the Housing Choice designation and/or other community planning and development tools to create new housing. MassWorks will continue its commitment to helping communities prepare for success and contribute to the long term strength and sustainability of the Commonwealth, with a particular emphasis on the production of multi-family housing in appropriately located walkable, mixed-use districts that result in direct and immediate job creation and/or that support new economic development activity in weak or distressed areas.
Generally, the most competitive applications are those that: a) leverage private development that aligns with the sustainable development goals of the Commonwealth, b) are advanced in their planning and permitting, c) meet most if not all of the program’s spending targets, and d) are ready to begin in the upcoming construction season.
