Business Assistance Programs,
Affordable Housing and Social Services

The Hilltown CDC was founded by community residents within ten rural towns (populations 556-2800 persons per town) of Western Massachusetts due to a recognized lack of local and municipal capacity to advocate for a fair share of resources for the region and to facilitate cooperative regional programming. Founders wished to improve the overall quality of life for area residents, many of whom have very low incomes, are unemployed or underemployed. These persons suffer from the isolation of the region, the lack of public transportation, lack of local jobs, and an overall absence of basic services and facilities that are commonplace in more populated areas.

Hilltown CDC has steadily expanded its range of programs and staff capacity during its 16 year history. Through highly successful grant writing, Hilltown CDC has aided the communities it serves to raise over 10 million dollars in program funds for the region. Program impacts include: rehabilitating over 350 housing units; developing 8 units of affordable housing; providing small business loans or technical assistance to over 531 businesses; making 18 public buildings handicapped accessible; reconstruction of over two miles of roadway; construction of a 2,400 sq. ft. community center; facilitating community planning activities and organizing local groups; securing grants for social service programs reaching over 1,000 local low and moderate income residents.
