Welcome to Dedham Housing Authority

Dedham Housing Authority provides housing assistance to low income residents through the management programs such as Low Rent Public Housing and the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8).  These programs are income based and the eligibility guidelines are set by the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). There may be waiting lists for rentals or vouchers, however the waiting lists remain open at all times for new applicants.  If you are in need of housing assistance in the area, please contact the Housing Authority directly to obtain more information about eligibility requirements, availability of rentals or vouchers, the status of any waiting list and their application procedures.
