North Suburban Consortium

The North Suburban Consortium (NSC) is a group of eight communities that collectively apply for and administer federal HOME funds. The NSC is composed of Arlington, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Revere, and Winthrop, and is led by Malden. The NSC Board is composed of representatives from each community appointed by the municipality's chief executive.

Developers interested in seeking HOME program financing should contact the representative for the city in which their project is located.
