In 2002, the affordability restriction on 110 Walnut Street was about to expire and the 12 units were at risk of being converted to market rents. SCC purchased and renovated the building and kept the units affordable through vouchers from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s project-based Section 8 program. By February 2004, existing tenants were able to stay in their newly renovated units and retain an affordable home.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
