The Department of Neighborhood Development is committed to making Boston the most livable city in the nation by working with its many communities to build strong neighborhoods through the strategic investment of public resources.
Helping Neighborhood Businesses
Van Mateo and Karen Diep acquired the property at 1156 Dorchester Avenue to revive their family restaurant. They spent $2.3 million to renovate the 3-story restaurant and bar which opened in January 2012. The project created over 20 permanent jobs and was funded by a $1.6 Million SBA loan and $175,000 in grants.
Creating Affordable Housing for Boston’s Seniors
The Neighborhood Housing Development Division held ribbon cuttings for two very important elderly housing projects. Neponset Fields in Hyde Park offers 31 units of affordable elder housing, of which 4 are reserved for formerly homeless elders. Central Boston Elderly Services in Dudley Square has 57 units of affordable elder housing, with 12 reserved for formerly homeless elders.
Investing in Boston’s Triple-Deckers
At the Boston Home Center’s Housing Expo in Dorchester, the Mayor launched the 3D Campaign to assist homebuyers and owners of triple-deckers, pledging $3 million in down payment and repair assistance over the next three years. The home repair program, 3D HELP, offers up to $30,000 per owner with one-third reserved for exterior improvements. Over 300 people attended the expo.
