Belchertown Housing Authority Wait Lists

The Belchertown Housing Authority  manages only three housing programs: elderly, non-elderly disabled, and family housing. For the elderly/disabled housing program (667) we have 48 one bedroom apartments, 24 of which are on the first floor and 24 of which are on the second floor. For the family housing (705) program we have six 2 bedroom units, two 4 bedroom units, and eight 3 bedroom units. To be eligible for the 667 program you must either be 60 years of age or older, or be able to provide certification from a physician (on the Department of Housing & Community Development [DHCD] provided form) that you have a qualifying disability. To be eligible for the 705 program your family size must fit within State Sanitary Code guidelines for our 2, 3 or 4 bedroom units. In addition to this eligibility criteria, your household must be within the income guidelines for either housing program.

In addition to being eligible for the housing program that you are applying to, your household must also be qualified. Qualification screening includes personal reference checks, prior landlord reference checks, criminal history checks, and other background screening.

All wait lists are currently open.

The Belchertown Housing Authority cannot participate in the MRVP, AHVP, Section 8, or any other voucher program at this time. We also do not have any federally funded housing programs at this time.
