 Description of the Cohasset Housing Authority:

 

The Cohasset Housing Authority (CHA) is a State-aided Public Housing Authority and a local government organization under State Law, with a five member Board of Commissioners, four of whom stand for town election and the fifth is appointed by the Governor.  Typically CHA Board meetings are held once a month in the Community room at 60 Elm Street.

 

 


 Housing Authority's Mission

 

The Board of Commissioners pursues its mandate of providing affordable housing for all Cohasset residents by raising awareness of what the Housing Authority has to offer, and by researching new opportunities to create affordable housing that is safe and secure for those with the greatest need.  The Board is responsible for reviewing and updating regulatory policies and procedures that the State provides for all Housing Authorities.  A link to the Department of Housing and Community Development is provided below (link is in bold).

 

Department of Housing and Community Development

 

The CHA owns and manages 64 one bedroom units of housing for elderly and disabled people, with subsidy from the State.  This housing is available to persons over the age of 60, and younger disabled individuals.  At this time the CHA does not have any family housing.  The CHA also owns 12 units of housing managed by the Department of Developmental Services.

 


 Applications

 

Applications for housing can be obtained by contacting the Authority at (781) 383-1948, or by visiting the Authority at 60 Elm Street, or by emailing CHA at Cohassetha@verizon.net - residents of Cohasset are given preference.
