BOSTON — Many Bostonians and their families may get the chance to become first-time homeowners after city hall announced a new housing program on Thursday. Mayor Marty Walsh said that the Barriers to Homeownership Working Group, in a partnership with the Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance and the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization, worked to create the ONE+Boston mortgage program. The program, offered by the Massachusetts Housing Partnership, will create more opportunities for low- to middle-income families to buy a home, officials from the mayor’s office said.
