DMH/DDS Set-Aside Program
Through the DMH/DDS Set-Aside Program, property owners set aside 3% of all low- and moderate-income units for referrals from the Departments of Mental Health (DMH) and Developmental Services (DDS).
The program, which began in 1978, has resulted in more than 500 units in MassHousing-financed developments being reserved for clients of the DMH and DDS.
