Welcome to the website of the Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Development (LHAND).
Since 1948 the Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Development (LHAND) has had a mission of assisting low and moderate-income families and individuals with safe and affordable housing.
Our emphasis is on fostering economic independence and providing homeownership opportunities. The agency has continually changed and since 1998 the LHAND has grown to include neighborhood services and administers programs on behalf of the office of Mayor Jared Nicholson and the City of Lynn Massachusetts.
The Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development values diversity, equity, and inclusion in every aspect of our work, including our internal operations and external activities to support our mission. We are committed to cultivating a culture of respect for the dignity and value of each individual and family, and we welcome all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, national origin, disability, household composition, housing status and/or belief system. These values are essential to our mission to assist and advocate for those who are homeless, at risk of losing their homes or need help to make ends meet, champion equity in all public and private responses to individuals and families, and help those from all backgrounds secure vital services, safe indoor shelter, and decent homes of their own.
LHAND continues to be committed to enhancing the quality of our community and building stronger, healthier neighborhoods by providing a wide range of neighborhood services and funding a variety of grant and loan programs that address the needs of renters, owners, homebuyers, and nonprofit housing providers.
It is my sincere hope that you find the resources you are in need of from LHAND here on this site.
