Immigrants and Housing

Produced by Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Reviewed March 2015

There are many rules about which immigrants are eligible for the different public and subsidized housing programs in Massachusetts. Some programs can limit who can apply, and some programs do not. For families where some members are immigrants and some are citizens, there are additional rules to consider.

This section introduces you to the rules that affect immigrants who apply for public or subsidized housing.  The section also gives information about whether an immigrant family will pay a higher rent once they are accepted into a housing program.
