									                           Community Based Housing (CBH)
                          Preliminary Application Form (2006)

The CBH program presents an opportunity to expand the range of housing options in the
community for people with disabilities. The program is designed to fund integrated
housing units that meet the housing needs and preferences of frail elders and other people
with disabilities who are institutionalized or at risk of institutionalization, for independent
housing integrated into the community. CBH is intended to expand the housing choices
available to these populations.

Priority will be given to projects that expand opportunities for more integrated housing
for people with disabilities by providing rental or condominium units in larger housing
developments that are accessible and visitable. MRC and EOHHS prefer that most, but
not all of the units to be developed with CBH financing, be accessible for persons with
mobility impairments. All units should be affordable to persons who are extremely low
income.

All developers should review the Principles for Developing Integrated Housing for
Persons with Disabilities and the Achieving Access and Function in Affordable Housing
in Massachusetts: Part One: Developer’s Overview as well as the Program Guidelines to
insure that the proposed project achieves the program and design goals of the CBH
program.

Please complete the pre-application and deliver to Margaret Dionne at MA Rehabilitation
Commission (MRC) (Margaret.Dionne@state.ma.us) and Sara Barcan at CEDAC
(sbarcan@cedac.org).
