 IMPORTANT NOTCIE ANNOUNCING THE AVAILABILITY OF AN ADDITIONAL QUINCY HOUSING AUTHORITY SITE BASED SECTION 8 PROJECT BASED VOUCHER PROGRAM (PBV) WAITING LIST OPPORTUNITY.

The Quincy Housing Authority has entered into a contract with Fenno House for 60 units of Project Based Assistance. Fenno House contains 0 and 1 bedroom units, including assisted living units.

The Quincy Housing Authority will now have five (5) developments which have Project-Based Voucher Assistance tied to specific units. These developments offer zero, one and two bedroom units, along with assisted living units. Since the subsidy is tied to the unit and not the family, moves are not permitted during the initial term of the lease.

To be eligible for Project Based Voucher Assistance, applicants must be at least 60 years of age or disabled. The QHA shall give preference to eligible in-place tenants who reside in a Project-Based unit at the time of initial designation.

The Quincy Housing Authority maintains a separate waiting list for the Project Based Voucher Assistance Program. This waiting list is open and will remain open until further notice. You may submit an application to the Quincy Housing Authority’s main office at any time. Further, if you have an active application with the Quincy Housing Authority you may apply to this additional PBV list and/or update your preferences at the Quincy Housing Authority’s main office.

You may obtain an application by visiting the office of the Authority, 80 Clay Street, Quincy, Massachusetts, you may call 617-847-4350 ext 900 to have an application mailed to you, or you may visit our website at http://quincyha.phanetwork.com/Home.aspx to download an application or obtain further information. Applicants will be selected from the Project Based Waiting list based on date and time of application, unit size/type and preference.

Important Notice: If you and/or any member of your household is/are a person(s) with disabilities according to federal or state laws and you believe that you and/or your household needs assistance with the wait list application process, you may request a reasonable accommodation by contacting the Tenant Selection Department at 617-847-4350 ext. 301. If you and/or a member of your household is a victim of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking and need certain circumstances considered or reviewed as mitigating circumstances relating to your application, please so inform the Tenant Selection Department at 617-847-4350 ext 301.

 
 
 
 
 

As of July 1, 2015 the Quincy Housing Authority has established a smoke free environment! For decades, we have known the harmful effects of tobacco use, including smoking and second-hand smoke exposure. Health related issues caused by tobacco use also lead to increased medical costs for the community, as well as the individual. A tobacco and smoke-free environment is a healthier environment for everyone. Together we can implement strategies that support and sustain healthy lifestyles where people can live, work, learn and play.
