The City of Peabody is the lead community of the North Shore Home Consortium, a group comprised of 30 communities throughout the North Shore, Cape Ann, and Merrimack Valley Regions. The Consortium is the recipient of approximately $1.3 million dollars annually from the Federal Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) program. These funds are then allocated by formula to all 30 communities in the region to assist in the development of affordable housing. Eligible HOME funded activities include a focus on affordable rental housing through the construction of new affordable housing units and the rehabilitation of existing units, some individual housing rehabilitation activities, and limited, short-term tenant-based rental assistance for very low income households.
