The Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities (EOHLC) was established in 2023 to create more homes and lower housing costs in every region. EOHLC also distributes funding to municipalities, oversees the state-aided public housing portfolio, and operates the state's EA family shelter.
Who we serve
The Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities (EOHLC) is charged with creating more homes in Massachusetts and lowering housing costs for residents.
Formerly known as the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), EOHLC works with municipalities, local housing authorities, non-profit organizations, and development partners to provide affordable housing options, financial assistance, and other support to Massachusetts communities.
The cabinet-level secretariat was created in 2023 by the Healey-Driscoll Administration and is led by Secretary Ed Augustus. You can learn more about the creation of the new office here.
We oversee different types of assistance and funding for consumers, businesses, and non-profit partners. The A to Z listing page may come in handy.
