Basile: House Passes Supportive Housing Legislation

(BOSTON - February 29, 2012) Representative Carlo P. Basile joined his colleagues in the House  this afternoon in passing supportive community housing legislation.

This legislation requires that the Executive Office of Health and Human Services and the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, among other agencies, enter into a community housing and services memorandum of understanding (MOU). The MOU would include an action plan to coordinate the procurement and availability of community-based supportive services and subsidies for new and existing housing for residents with very low incomes.

“I commend Chairman Honan and the Joint Committee on Housing for their efforts in crafting this supportive housing legislation,” House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D – Winthrop) said. “Three years into the worst economic downturn that we have seen since the Great Depression, it remains so critical that legislators keep in mind the most basic needs of our citizens.”

“Supportive housing ensures that our residents have safe, decent, affordable homes matched with services to remain independent and active in the community,” Representative Kevin Honan (D – Brighton), Chair of the Joint Committee on Housing, said. “Coordinating housing with these services will conserve resources across all agencies as well as improve the lives of thousands of Massachusetts residents.”

“This legislation will provide needed housing services on a community-based level for low income residents,” Representative Carlo P. Basile (D – East Boston), Vice Chairman, Financial Services, said. “I praise Chairman Honan and my colleagues in the Joint Committee on Housing, as this is the kind of help our communities need in this current economic state.”
