ACTON — Town Manager John Mangiaratti and Community Resources Coordinator Laura Ducharme would like to share information on a new rental assistance program available for Acton residents.
The Emergency Rental Assistance Program will provide temporary rental assistance in the form of a grant and will be administered through a collaboration with the Regional Housing Services Office (RHSO). The application window for the program will open on Monday, June 1.
