The Brookline Housing Authority (617-277-2022) The Housing Authority operates several elderly and disabled housing sites in Brookline. Renters in these buildings--- reserved solely for elderly or disabled Brookline residents---are generally required to pay 30 percent of their monthly income as rent. Applicants, therefore, must provide proof of income and assets on an annual basis to qualify for this housing.
The total number of units is 924 (394 state/499 federal/31 SROs in special needs group residences).
Residents pay 30% of their adjusted income (income after exemptions and deductions if any) in federally funded public housing and 32% of their adjusted income in state funded public housing. All residents qualify under the federal definition of low-income (80% or lower of the median area income).
We have a total of 457 elderly units.
