Carver Municipal Affordable Housing Trust Fund

The Carver Municipal Affordable Housing Trust (CMAHT) was formed to preserve & create affordable housing units.  The Trust was established through an affirmative Town Meeting vote at the May 2009 Annual Town Meeting, Article 40.  The Declaration of Trust was recorded at the Registry of Deeds in 2010.  The Carver Municipal Affordable Housing Trust has a minimum of five members, one of which must be a representative of the Board of Selectmen and a representative of the Carver Housing Authority.

The CMAHT receives funding through a Community Preservation Act appropriation at Town Meeting.  A Trust allows the Town of Carver to act quickly to purchase property, to prevent an affordable unit from being sold at market rate or from going into foreclosure.  Otherwise, the Town would need Town Meeting action, which only happens once per year.  The CMAHT meets on an as needed basis.
