The Housing Authority consists of four members appointed by the Board of Selectmen and one governor-appointed member for five-year terms. The Director is appointed by the Housing Authority. The Housing Authority is a public agency which provides housing for low-income, elderly and handicapped and families.

The Housing Authority is regulated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the Department of Housing and Community Development and must adhere to their regulations and funding requirements.

The Authority has the local management responsibilities for housing for the elderly under its jurisdiction in the Town, and is responsible for the clearance of substandard, decadent or blighted open areas or the provision of housing for families of low income or engaging in land assembly and redevelopment, including the preservation, restoration or relocation of historical buildings.
