Boston Housing Authority, Cambridge Housing Authority, and Braintree Housing Authority estimate payment standard below. If you have no or very limited income, consider selecting a unit with all utilities included. Although you must pay a minimum of 30% of your gross income, you may elect to pay up to 40% if you find a unit slightly above the price your public housing authority will allow.
Towns outside of Boston (if moving to Boston, use the first line of prices, PMSA 1) may have different payment standards. Zones with lower rent prices will have a lower payment standard (PMSA) the further you relocate away from Boston.
South Shore Housing Authority may have different payment standards. Please contact a case manager or housing authority rep for payment details.
