Housing Development:
Creating Affordable Housing for All

Men working on a roof of a HAP houseHAPHousing has been actively involved in affordable housing development for 25 years, participating in the creation of nearly 900 units for our Western Massachusetts region. The HAPHousing Real Estate team welcomes inquiries and invitations for our involvement in development projects in communities throughout Hampden and Hampshire counties.

Our expertise extends to housing rehabilitation, adaptive reuse and new construction in urban, suburban and rural environments. Projects vary in scale and complexity, ranging from single-family homes to large, multi-family buildings. HAPHousing developments are designed to enhance communities and meet local needs. Over the last several years, this has included affordable condiminiums for first-time homebuyers in Belchertown, affordable apartments for families in NOrthampton, and the renovation of the historic Church Street School into apartments for seniors in Ware. Please view our full project listing to see the quality and diversity of our work.

The properties we develop provide homes for a wide range of families and individuals of modest means. Communities have invited HAPHousing to create first-time homeownership opportunities as well as apartments for seniors, for people with disabilities and for families. Often, HAPHousing developments are undertaken as part of comprehensive neighborhood revitalization efforts or in partnership with other community-based organizations and service providers. HAPHousing also maintains a property management team in Chicopee that manages 477 rental units throughout the region.
