State Chapter 667 - Elderly & Young Disabled

State-funded public housing for seniors and people with disabilities is open to households where one member of the household is at least 60 years of age or has a disability and meets certain income guidelines.

For state public housing, the person with a disability can be any member of the family and does not have to be the head of household or a spouse (as is the case in federal public housing). For this program, however, there is a limit as to the percentage of non-elderly people with disabilities who are allowed to rent.

State Chapter 689 - Adults with Special Needs

Chapter 689 housing is public housing for adults with special needs. Although the program was established to serve people with a wide variety of needs, the current focus is on creating group homes for adults with mental disabilities who are leaving facilities run by the Department of Mental Health (DMH).

State Chapter 705 - Family

This housing is open to people of all ages, including single people, people with disabilities, and families. Units are usually in smaller buildings scattered throughout a city or town.
