Affordable Housing

Through the Acton Community Housing Corporation, the Acton Housing Authority, and the Regional Housing Services Office, the Town of Acton seeks to provide affordable housing opportunities to residents in need of assistance.

Acton Community Housing Corporation


The Acton Community Housing Corporation (ACHC) is appointed by the Board of Selectmen and charged with facilitating affordable housing for working families and individuals with modest incomes. The Board oversees First Time Homebuyer programs and moderate income rental units.

Visit the Acton Community Housing Corporation page for more information including meeting times, agendas, and minutes.

Acton Housing Authority


The Acton Housing Authority (AHA) is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners who appoints an Executive Director. Four members of the Board are elected by residents of the Town, and the fifth member is appointed by the Governor of Massachusetts.

The AHA provides affordable rental housing units in the Town of Acton and rental assistance in the form of subsidies to low-income individuals and families so that they can rent housing in the private market.

Visit the Acton Housing Authority page for more information including meeting times, agendas, and minutes.

Regional Housing Services Office


The Regional Housing Services Office (RHSO) is a collaboration between the member towns of Acton, Bedford, Burlington, Concord, Lexington, Sudbury and Weston.  The RHSO was formed in 2011 through an Inter-Municipal Agreement (and amended) assisted by Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), the regional planning agency for Greater Boston.

The RHSO serves its member towns by assisting with the municipal function of affordable housing, including proactive monitoring, program administration, project development and resident assistance.
