Housing Assistance

Having safe and affordable housing is one of the most important things in a person’s or family’s life. 

If you are a Cambridge resident and live in a CHA property or have a CHA Section 8 and are facing job loss or a reduction in hours due to Covid 19 – you may be eligible for an interim rent-recalculation.  Follow this link to CHA website and follow directions at the top of the screen.
