North Shore Home Consortium

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.

The City of Peabody and the North Shore HOME Consortium are seeking public comment on their Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the 2016 Program Year. This written document is intended to 1.) Report on the use of HOME funds for the development of affordable housing in this region over the past year, and 2.) Report on the use of CDBG funds in the City of Peabody over the past year, to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and to the general public. The City of Peabody and the Consortium has made this document available to the general public and encourages comments from all interested parties. Click Here

The public comment period began on Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 and will end on Thursday, September 28th, 2017. All interested parties, representatives from the Consortium’s member communities, and nonprofit providers whose clients are impacted by the need for affordable housing are urged to review these documents and to respond with comments. Written comments may be addressed, on or before September 29th, to: The Department of Community Development City Hall, 24 Lowell Street Peabody, Massachusetts 01960 FAX (978) 538-5987 e-mail addresses: or
