Public Housing

The Housing Choice Voucher Program, also known as Section 8, is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Applicants must meet very low income limits as set forth by HUD. Applicants search for a unit in the private market and it is the responsibility of the landlord to check applicants for rental suitability.

Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS)

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program links public housing assistance with case management to assist tenants working toward financial independence and the possibility of homeownership. Whatever your goals may be the FSS Coordinator can help you with the resources to achieve them. Only Federal Public Housing tenants that are in good standing with the housing authority can participate in the program. When a participant is employed he/she will begin to receive money in an escrow account provided by the housing authority. T he FSS Coordinator is on site at the Mace and Scrivano development regularly if you are interested or have any more questions about the program.

Resident Officer Program

In an effort to increase the public safety presence in its developments and to improve the quality of life for its residents, the Chelsea Housing Authority ("CHA") has developed the Resident Police Officer Program.
