In 2021, the Great Barrington Affordable Housing Trust Fund awarded the project development rights to Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity to rehabilitate to develop a 7.25-acre site with up to 20 affordable homes. Habitat will eventually own the site, with units being owned by income-qualified first-time homebuyer households. White Engineering of Pittsfield, MA conducted the first phase of engineering work — funded by a Mass Works grant of $69,000. The Town has recently received an additional Mass Works program grant of $3.2 million to complete the engineering, design, infrastructure (water, sewer, roads) and permitting tasks, with a construction start date anticipated in 2023.
