Welcome to the Dennis Housing Authority

The Dennis Housing Authority was established on October 29, 1970 under Chapter 121B of the General Laws governing the State of Massachusetts.

The DHA is committed to ensuring safe, decent and affordable housing for low income persons by working cooperatively with community, state, federal and local officials. The DHA always endeavors to make the best use of all available resources so our residents and participants can live in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, free from discrimination.

The Dennis Housing Authority owns and manages five housing developments and four scattered site dwellings. Three of the developments house elderly and disabled persons with one and two bedrooms. One development of Family Housing and four scattered site duplex family units all with three or four bedrooms, for a total of 144 units, as well as a property designated for Special Needs Housing with 8 bedrooms. Our programs are targeted to assist low-income families, seniors, veterans, and persons with disabilities.

All Dennis Housing Authority Properties are Smoke-Free.

Our agency administers and provides housing opportunities through federal rental housing assistance (Housing Choice Vouchers – also known as Section 8 Vouchers) and state rental housing assistance (Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program – also known as MRVP Vouchers). The programs offer rent subsidies to persons of low income, which allow them to acquire apartments in private developments or houses. The DHA also administers Department of Mental Health Vouchers – also known as DMH Vouchers, which offers subsidies to DMH clients of low income.

The DHA monitors and manages 40b-approved affordable rental and home purchase properties within the Town of Dennis.
