The Quincy Housing Authority was organized by a vote of the City Council in April of 1946 under Chapter 121 of the Massachusetts General Laws. The Authority is a public body corporate, whose function is to administer the local public housing programs. An Authority is not a Federal, State or City department, but is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth.

The mission of the Quincy Housing Authority is to enhance the City of Quincy Community by creating and sustaining safe, decent, and sanitary affordable housing environments for people with low incomes.

The Quincy Housing Authority Development Corporation was organized on July 23, 2014. This affiliate of the Quincy Housing Authority has non profit status, and does business under QuincyCARES.  It is the mission of the Development Corporation to operate exclusively for charitable purposes. The objectives to be carried on and promoted by the Corporation include seeking grants or other funding and contributions to provide services and assistance to persons of low or moderate income and to construct, manage and maintain housing for the benefit of such persons.
