Public Housing

The Public Housing program enables an individual or family to live in a development owned and managed by the Brattleboro Housing Partnerships. We own and manage 307 apartment homes for seniors, persons with disabilities and families. These homes are found in five developments throughout Brattleboro. All developments have community rooms, with kitchens, recreation space and central laundries (except Moore Court which has washer/dryer hookups).

BHP provides 24 hour maintenance, on site property staff and, in some developments, special programs for adults and youth. Onsite parking is also available everywhere (though it is limited in some developments). Rent in all 5 properties is based on 30% of the families adjusted gross income.

The Mandatory Earned Income Disallowance (MEID) Program is for eligible residents of Public Housing or people with disabilities in the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Under MEID, a resident may be able to keep money earned as income instead of paying it towards rent increases. MEID can result in significant savings to a household.

If you want more information or think you or any member of your household might qualify please discuss MEID with the Public Housing property or Section 8 staff. We can’t give you this financial benefit unless you tell us all your household sources of income- especially whenever they change.
