Rental Assistance
781-581-8700
174 South Common Street
Lynn MA 01905

The Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Developmentā€™s Rental Assistance Department manages approximately 3000 units of rental assistance through various subsidized programs located at 174 South Common Street. There are approximately 15 employees working within the Rental Assistance department. These programs help low-income families rent safe and decent housing in the private market.

The LHAND is mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to undergo a Section 8 Management Assessment (SEMAP). SEMAP reviews are conducted periodically to assure monies granted are used efficiently in carrying out laws mandated by Congress.

Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
As a result of changes to federal housing law in October of 1999, there will be one Section 8 Rental Assistance Program entitled the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The two separate Section 8 Rental Assistance Programs known as the Certificate Program and the Voucher Program no longer exist. The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program increases affordable housing choices for very low-income households by helping families pay a portion of their rent in privately owned housing.

Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program
The Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP), formerly known as the Chapter 707 program, helps low-income families and individuals by offering both tenant and project-based rental subsidies. The tenant-based voucher is assigned to the tenant and is valid for any housing unit that meets the standard of the state sanitary code. Project-based vouchers are assigned to a specific housing unit or development. The owner rents these units to a program eligible tenant. Project-based tenants who move forfeit the subsidy.
