Family Housing

Milton Housing has a variety of family housing opportunities. The largest of these programs is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program with 144 vouchers.

Section 8 HCV

The Milton Housing Authority administers the Housing Choice Voucher program in Milton and Randolph. This program is designed to assist families, elderly persons and disabled families by providing rental assistance to tenants of privately owned rental units. Program participants pay a 30% minimum of their adjusted monthly income toward rental and utilities. The Milton Housing Authority then pays a Housing Assistance Payment to the landlord for the difference between the tenant’s payment and the HUD determined Fair Market Rent. Once an applicant is awarded a voucher they can begin their housing search.  When they find a suitable unit it must meet approval from the Milton Housing Authority through an inspection, landlord contract and rent approval. The Section 8 program waiting list is administered by the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (MassNAHRO). A person who applies for Section 8 in Milton also applies at all other participating Massachusetts housing authorities.

Chapter 705
The Milton Housing Authority has 12 three bedroom units under this program scattered throughout Milton. The state family housing chapter 705 program is a state-funded program aiming to provide housing for low-income families.

Milton Housing has 3 vouchers through the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP). The state voucher value is a set amount determined by tenants adjusted gross income and the household size. The tenant then pays the difference between the voucher value and what the landlord is charging for rent. The landlords rent cannot be more than the fair market rent as determined by the federal government.
