Housing Innovations Fund (HIF), Facilities Consolidation Fund (FCF) and Community Based Housing (CBH)

Most projects seeking these funds must apply through competitive rounds announced by DHCD (www.mass.gov/dhcd). Projects seeking FCF or CBH funding must receive certification from Department of Mental Health (DMH) or Department of Developmental Services (DDS) for FCF funds, or the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) for CBH funds and must submit a copy of the project’s full DHCD Preliminary Application with CBH or FCF addendum to CEDAC and to the relevant EOHHS agency. Group homes seeking FCF funds with no other resources from the Commonwealth may submit pre-applications to CEDAC and DDS or DMH on a rolling basis.
