Welcome to The Boston Housing Authority Website!
The BHA is dedicated to providing quality, public and affordable housing for all. Each of our developments is a special place, reflecting the rich diversity in the experiences and backgrounds of our residents and the surrounding neighborhoods. We welcome people from many walks of life and enjoy being part of their lives in a meaningful way by providing affordable, comfortable housing. We work diligently to create positive living environments to enhance the quality of life for our residents.
While our public housing program is very important to many people, equally important are our rental housing subsidy programs, the largest of which is known as the Section 8 Voucher program. Our rental subsidies allow families and individuals the opportunity to rent from a private landlord anywhere in the United States and have their rent subsidized so that it remains affordable for them. These programs can help reunite families, assist grandparents in raising their grandchildren and provide needed housing to homeless persons.
We have developed this web site to better serve our residents, applicants, advocates and the larger community by providing helpful information about the BHA, its policies and procedures, and the application process. Please take the time to enjoy the site and feel free to contact us with suggestions regarding information that would be helpful to you or ideas about how the site can be improved.
Thanks for visiting!
