Affordable Housing

There’s truly no place like home. That’s why the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED) supports low-income families, people living with special needs, or others in need of financial assistance with affordable housing options in Massachusetts.

Families or individuals looking for affordable housing can find the help they need through various public housing, rental assistance, or home stabilization programs in Massachusetts:

Massachusetts Public Housing Programs

Massachusetts Rental Assistance Programs

Massachusetts Home Stabilization Programs

  • HomeBASE is a flexible financial resource for Emergency Assistance-eligible families currently in a shelter, facing homelessness, or in other need of a more secure housing situation.
  • Homeless individuals and families with long-term need for ongoing support services due to mental illness, intellectual and development disability, physical illness or disability, or another a disabling condition may also apply for Continuum of Care Programs.

Before applying for housing assistance, explore additional details about eligibility and qualification requirements. The Commonwealth is here to lend a hand, so contact the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED) today.
