About Falmouth Housing Authority

Our agency provides housing opportunities through the federal rental housing assistance (Housing Choice Vouchers - also known as Section 8 and DIAL Vouchers) and Massachusetts state housing programs. We also monitor 40b-approved affordable rental and home purchase properties.

Our programs and properties are targeted to assist low, very low, and extremely low-income households. The vast majority of our client households are extremely low-income families, seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and formally homeless. Working together with landlords, housing developers, charities and local governments, we strive to provide housing and support services to as many eligible families as possible. This website will be developed to provide service to our applicants, residents, landlords and the community by providing helpful information regarding the housing authority, its policies and procedures, the application, income-calculation and grievance process.
