Shared Housing Services Office Workshop

MHP hosted this workshop on April 14, 2021. It featured a panel discussion on the benefits of municipalities joining together to track and administer affordable housing. 

The workshop highlighted regional coordination like the Reading-based, five-community Metro North Regional Housing Services and MetroWest's Regional Housing Services Office, a 10-year-old organization that assists seven towns with affordable housing monitoring, administration, project development, and resident assistance.

The panel consisted of leaders from regional non-profit development and housing service organizations, including:

  • Laurie Stanton, MetroNorth Regional Housing Services Office
  • Jennifer Van Campen, MetroWest Collaborative Development                                          
  • Gina Govoni, Franklin County Regional Housing & Redevelopment Authority
  • Jay Coburn, Community Development Partnership (CDP)
  • Elizabeth Rust, Regional Housing Services Office
