The Cambridge Housing Authority was awarded almost $29 million in federal stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). On a per apartment basis, CHA is the fifth largest recipient of competitive ARRA grants amongst large public housing agencies.
These stimulus funds are enabling CHA to advance over $81 million in long-overdue redevelopment and renovation projects throughout the City. This work will result in higher quality housing for low-income Cantabrigians, and will allow CHA to improve properties' energy efficiency while significantly reducing their carbon footprint. Combined, these projects are injecting over $160 million dollars into the local economy and creating or retaining hundreds of well-paying jobs for hard working men and women.
