For our public housing units, and our MRVP Project Based housing program, Mashpee residents get preference above non-Mashpee residents. This no longer applies to Asher's Path Apartments. Our Housing Assistance Program is available ONLY for Mashpee residents.
This is not an easy question to answer. The wait to get housing depends on many things. By regulation, we must first house those applicants who have been granted emergency status. If there is no one on the list with emergency status, we then go to the next person on the list who is a Mashpee resident. If there are no Mashpee residents on the list, then it goes by application date.
Currently the wait is 6-12 months. Applicants are taken on a first come, first serve basis.
For all programs there are income limits. In addition, all applicants must pass CORI, credit, sexual predator, and reference check
Public housing is housing that was built and is subsidized by the State of Massachusetts. Rents paid are based according to income, so you will pay between 30% - 40% of your income for rent, depending on the program. Asher's Path is a privately funded, Low Income Tax Credit Program, that has eligibility requirements that are different from public housing. The rents at Asher's Path are set according to a calculation done based on the Area Median Income (AMI) in Barnstable County.
