DHCD's Division of Public Housing and Rental Assistance, which administers this program, has the responsibility for regulatory and administrative oversight of all state- and federally-aided rental assistance programs which address the needs of low-income families, the elderly and persons with disabilities.
How it works:
Tenants pay no more than 30% of their adjusted income for rent and utilities. Supportive services are generally required to be made available to the tenants; and a project sponsor arranges for the provision of these services. Acceptance of these services, however, is not a tenant eligibility requirement.
DHCD administers five Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation SRO developments, as follows: In Lowell, 8 units targeted to persons living with AIDS/ HIV; in Worcester, 38 units for homeless individuals; in Gardner, 15 units targeted to homeless veterans; in Haverhill, 19 units targeted to homeless veterans; and in Springfield 44 units targeted to homeless individuals.
The monthly rental assistance housing subsidy is administered by DHCD's regional Section 8 contractors.
Who is eligible:
Very low-income homeless individuals who may or may not have supportive service needs.
For further information:
For more information about any of these SRO developments, please contact the Bureau of Federal Rental Assistance at DHCD at (617) 573-1207.
