HBI is pleased to announce that the Eastern Bank Charitable Fund presented Historic Boston Inc. with a generous $20,000 grant toward rehabilitation of the historic Alvah Kittredge House in Roxbury for five mixed income housing units.
Committed to contributing meaningfully to the health and vitality of Massachusetts communities, the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation’s grant to HBI helps to advance the organization’s Trilogy Fund, HBI’s $1 million capital campaign for three buildings, and specifically helps to complete the Kittredge House’s preservation and its conversion to mixed-income housing.
“We are delighted to have the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation’s support for our work.” said HBI Executive Director Kathy Kottaridis. “This is a financial institution that understands the needs of Boston’s neighborhoods and makes investments that make a difference there.”
The Kittredge House’s rehabilitation will be completed in June 2014. The third of three “Trilogy Fund” projects, the 1868 Vertullo Building in Hyde Park, begins construction this month.
