At the end of last week, Governor Baker announced a $774 million plan to aid in the Commonwealth's recovery. While there is much more that must be done to support residents of the Commonwealth, this funding represents a meaningful step in the right direction.
The plan includes:
- $322.8 million in direct assistance for small and diverse local businesses for staffing, technical assistance, training, and outdoor commerce infrastructure
- $171 million for help streamline housing assistance through RAFT and provide more funds for assistance
-$100 million in additional funding for community development financial institutions
