Foundation Replacement Funding May Be Available in Massachusetts

Established in 2019, the Massachusetts Special Commission is currently deliberating on the financial and economic impacts of the crumbling concrete foundations issue. Their objective is to develop financial assistance mechanisms for homeowners adversely affected by this prevalent problem.

Moreover, the commission is advising that Massachusetts take a leaf from Connecticut's book by establishing a captive insurance corporation. This corporation would manage compensation payouts to affected homeowners, further easing their financial burden.
