Massachusetts Rental Assistance Voucher Programs

Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program

NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions (NHS) administers approximately 150 vouchers through the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP). Participants can use these tenant-based vouchers for any housing unit that meets the standards of the state sanitary code. Visit the MRVP webpage to learn more or apply .

Please Note: application does not guarantee acceptance. You must meet state-set requirements for eligibility.


Project Based Vouchers

While most of NHS’ Section 8 and MRVP vouchers are tenant-based and allow tenants to find housing in the private rental market, we also administer Project-Based Section 8’s and MRVP’s. These are assigned to specific apartments or rental developments. The owner rents these units to a program-eligible tenant. When tenants of these units move, the subsidy stays with the apartment.

NHS administers smaller numbers of specialized rental subsidies. Our portfolio of vouchers is summarized below:
Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation
Shelter Plus Care
Housing Opportunities for People w/AIDS
Family Unification Program
Mass. Rental Voucher Program
Dept. of Mental Health Voucher Program
Dept. of Developmental Services (DDS) Program
