The Framingham Housing Authority is a quasi-state agency, that manages and administers state and federal housing in the city of Framingham. Although the Framingham Housing Authority has a strong relationship with the City of Framingham, the Housing Authority operates independent of the city. The FHA receives federal and state funding in order to provide housing programs to qualifying individuals and families. The funding requires the FHA to adhere to any applicable housing regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.
The mission: The Framingham Housing Authority strives to provide safe, sanitary, and secure housing for extremely low to moderate-income families while promoting and encouraging economic self-sufficiency and creating a welcoming environment for residents to live. The Housing Authority works with private and public entities to optimize resources through innovative programs. The FHA works collaboratively with city, state, and federal agencies to assist with creating more affordable housing opportunities.
