The Commonwealth's Affirmative Market Program recently honored MassHousing with a Benchmark Achievement Award in recognition of the Agency's success in utilizing women-owned businesses to procure various goods and services. During the 2008 fiscal year, MassHousing exceeded its goal by 10%.
The Affirmative Market Program aims to increase opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses with state offices and entities. Participants work with the Program to set goals for all procurements, regardless of size.
MassHousing has a longstanding commitment to increasing opportunities for minority and women business enterprises (MBEs/WBEs). Our Compliance & Diversity Division promotes MBE/WBE utilization both internally and at MassHousing-financed properties and worksites. Learn more about our Diversity Programs.
