Mass Dreams is Still Available - Through MHP - Massachusetts Housing Partnership


With the recent announcement that MassHousing will be suspending its MassDREAMS grant program as of November 30th, we want to make clear that MassDREAMS is still available through MHP when paired with a ONE Mortgage. 

MassHousing and MHP have taken two very different approaches to the MassDREAMS program.  MHP realizes that MassDREAMS is a truly valuable and unprecedented resource and has always intended to operate a program that provides assistance to households in need.  We’ve created an infrastructure to ensure that prospective and eligible first-time homebuyers have a fair and equal opportunity to access the program.  Therefore, we anticipate MHP’s MassDREAMS program lasting well into 2023.

MHP’s website contains information about the program including a list of participating lenders -
