About Newton Housing Authority

The Newton Housing Authority was created in 1959 and is the largest provider of affordable housing in the City of Newton.  The NHA provides housing assistance to over 1000 low-income residents through the administration of federal and state-sponsored subsidized housing programs and the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.  The NHA also owns and operates a management portfolio of 93 studio, one, two, and three-bedroom units.

The NHA has a responsibility to provide and maintain a high standard of housing, which allows our residents a safe, clean, and affordable home in which to reside.  The NHA also endeavors to create a sense of community for its residents through its social service programs, so as to enhance their quality of life within an environment of dignity and caring.

In recent years, the NHA has worked to create more affordable housing in the City of Newton and greatly expand our Resident Services Program, providing enhanced tenant-focused social services and clinical case management to better meet the changing needs of our residents. 

Due to the increasing need for affordable housing in our community, there are waiting lists for many of our housing programs. For questions about the availability of units, eligibility requirements, and how to apply for rental housing, please contact the Newton Housing Authority office at 617-552-5501.
