In 2021, the Massachusetts State Legislature appropriated $150 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for a reserve to support the production of permanent supportive housing. Of that $150 million, $15 million is being administered by the Massachusetts Alliance for Supportive Housing (MASH) -- a collaboration between Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance (MHSA), United Way of Massachusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley (United Way), and Corporation of Supportive Housing (CSH) -- to advance the creation of permanent supportive housing for unaccompanied adults experiencing homelessness who have disabling conditions.
