The BHA has several FAMILY developments scattered around the Boston area.

  • STATE developments are funded by the state/government through the Massachusetts department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD)
  • The FEDERAL developments are funded by the federal government through the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
  • MIXED FINANCE developments are Family Developments that have more complicated funding arrangements, including PRIVATE financing through Private Management Companies like Beacon Properties, Trinity Management etc…

Mixed Finance housing developments are run a bit differently from the other State and Federal developments.
