MassWorks Infrastructure Program

MassWorks provides grants to communities to help them prepare for success and contribute to the long term strength and sustainability of our Commonwealth.

THE 2020 MASSWORKS ROUND IS NOW OPEN. The RFR/Guidelines and application template are posted below. The link to the application portal is now live.

The MassWorks Infrastructure Program is a competitive grant program that provides the largest and most flexible source of capital funds to municipalities and other eligible public entities primarily for public infrastructure projects that support and accelerate housing production, spur private development, and create jobs throughout the Commonwealth.

MassWorks is authorized under Mass. General Laws, Chapter 23A, Section 63 and is administered by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development. EOHED is committed to helping communities prepare for success and contribute to the long term strength and sustainability of our Commonwealth. The program places particular emphasis on the production of multi-family housing in appropriately located walkable, mixed-use districts that result in direct and immediate job creation and/or that support economic development in weak or distressed areas.

Governor Baker signed An Act Relative to Job Creation and Workforce Development in 2016 to reauthorize MassWorks and support $500 million of future investment in critical infrastructure. The 2018 economic development legislation signed by the Governor in 2018 allocated an additional $250 million to the program.

Since 2015, the Baker-Polito Administration has made 219 awards to 141 communities, investing over $456M in public infrastructure projects throughout the state. These grants have supported the creation of over 14,000 new housing units, tens of thousands of construction and permanent jobs, while also leveraging over $9.2B in private investment.

The Baker-Polito Administration is pleased to announce the opening of the MassWorks 2020 Round. All Massachusetts municipalities and public entities are eligible to apply for grant support for public infrastructure improvement projects.
