Welcome to Melrose Housing Authority

The Melrose Housing Authority is proud to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing to residents of Melrose. Under the leadership of our 5 member Board of Commissioners we currently assist over 550 households through our Public Housing, and Rental Assistance Programs. The MHA has played a vital role in providing affordable housing and resident services to Melrose’s low-income residents, the disabled, seniors, and families. We continue to ensure that the daily needs of our properties, and residents are met with honor, integrity, and accountability.
