Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program
And
Alternative Housing Voucher Program

What are the MRVP and AHVP Programs?

The Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) and the Alternative Housing Voucher Program (AHVP) are state-funded rent assistance programs through the Department of Housing and Community Development for low-income Massachusetts residents. The AHVP is only for Massachusetts residents under the age of 60 who have disabilities.

The MRVP offers two types of rent vouchers: "mobile" tenant-based vouchers that allow tenants to choose their own apartments, and project-based vouchers at specific subsidized housing developments. The AHVP has mobile vouchers only.

The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) administers the MRVP and AHVP programs. Everett Housing Authority administers both of these programs.

Applications for the MRVP program can be obtained through the Everett Housing Authority.

Applications for the AHVP program are not accepted through Everett Housing Authority but can be obtained by contacting the Department of Housing and Community Development @ mass.gov or calling (617) 573-1150
