Another great meeting, we had Steven A Beauregard, Executive Director of New Bedford Housing Authority (Section 8) arriving in victory, having just raised the subsidy for New Bedford Section 8 Housing. Section 8 Housing is now competitive with the market.
We also had Kerry Farias from Fall River speaking for Fall River issues.
The goal of New Bedford and Fall River Housing is to put more low-income people into housing. At present, there are 135 vouchers in New Bedford waiting for housing. Many housing issues were discussed.
