Sudbury’s Housing Authority is regulated by the Commonwealth’s Department of Housing and Community Development, and local policies are made by a Board of Commissioners. Four of those commissioners are elected for five-year terms by the voters of Sudbury, and the fifth is appointed by the Governor’s office. All must be Sudbury residents. The SHA has been financially self-sufficient for many years, with tenant rents covering both operating and capital expenses.
The SHA owns, manages and maintains 28 units of family housing on scattered sites throughout Sudbury, in the form of either single-family houses or duplexes. To qualify for such housing, a family’s income must be under $54,200 for a family of two, and ranges upward in approximately $6,000 increments depending on family size. Rent is set at 27% of income and tenants are responsible for utilities. Generally, the family wait list is closed to new applicants due to the low vacancy rate. Contact the office for information on the wait list status.
The 64 one-bedroom apartments at Musketahquid Village, owned and managed by the SHA, are for those who meet the state’s guidelines for low income rental housing for seniors and disabled people. Income must be under $47,450 for one person and $54,200 for two people, and homeownership does not disqualify an applicant. Rent is 30% of income and includes utilities.
The Board of Commissioners meets at 4:00 p.m. at Musketahquid Village, 55 Hudson Road, on the second Tuesday of each month. Meetings are posted in the Town Clerk’s office and on the bulletin board at Musketahquid’s Community Building. Public attendance is welcomed.
The SHA is always interested in knowing of local residents who might be interested in volunteering their time, either as members of the Board or for special projects.
