Welcome to The Malden Housing Authority

The Mission of the Malden Housing Authority (“MHA”) is to preserve, extend, protect, create and expand public and affordable housing opportunities locally while also maintaining and sustaining the affordability and improving the quality and condition of existing developments and units; to encourage homeownership, support community development, and increase the number and quality of accessible affordable units, free from discrimination. To fulfill this mission, the MHA will strive to embrace high standards of ethics, management, and accountability, and will attempt to forge partnerships that leverage other public and private resources in order to improve the MHA’s ability to be a successful and effective local assisted/affordable housing provider.

Family Self-Sufficiency Program:

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program enables families assisted through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and Public Housing (PH) residents, to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on welfare assistance and rental subsidies. Under the FSS program, low-income families are provided opportunities for education, job training, counseling and other forms of social service assistance, while living in assisted housing, so they can obtain skills necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.
