Residential Retrofit Program

The Residential Retrofit Program is to deploy state of the art broadband infrastructure at approximately 22,000 Affordable Housing properties across Massachusetts. MBI intends to increase low-income residents’ opportunity to access high-quality, reliable, and affordable broadband service in their homes by addressing deficient wiring and infrastructure through grants for the deployment of fiberoptic cabling to the unit to qualified Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) who will install, own, and maintain equipment.

Housing operators interested in applying to participate in the Retrofit Program can submit an expression of interest through our online form. MBI will collect some basic organizational information along with the addresses which the operator wishes to have considered eligible for the program.
