Metro Housing|Boston is currently selecting applicants from April, 2008.
For a one-member household to be eligible for assistance, the member must be either elderly or a person with a disability. If, upon selection for the waiting list, an applicant is a one-member household and is not elderly or a person with a disability, they will be ineligible for DHCD’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and will be removed from the waiting list.
