Grants will help renovate long-vacant public housing

As a new executive director was selected for the Natick Housing Authority earlier this month, the state announced a program that would give the Natick authority nearly $255,000 to fix up 28 vacant units.

The number of units is the second highest to be renovated among the 33 agencies taking part in the program. Fitchburg, with 41 vacant units, has the highest number to refurbish, while Worcester, with 26 vacant units, was third. Fitchburg manages a total of 570 units, according to the state; Worcester, 562.
