How to find Housing

Mass Access web sitewww.massaccesshousingregistry.org

The Deval Patrick Administration announced the launch of a newly redesigned housing website to help bridge the gap between residents in need of affordable, accessible housing and available apartments across the state. The new site (www.massaccesshousingregistry.org) features a user-friendly design and an expanded database of affordable rental housing in Massachusetts, including accessible and adaptable homes for people with disabilities (link opens in new window).

Some of the features of Mass Access include:

  • Vacancy and waitlist information for all affordable rental housing in Massachusetts, including housing for people with disabilities
  • Ability for property owners and managers to login to the registry and post their own available rental units and housing applications
  • Ability for consumers to login and customize and save housing searches
  • The opportunity for housing consumers to receive email updates when new units become available
  • An automated mapping feature to track the location of available units


There are many agencies that can help you locate housing, although they may have waiting lists. The following are types of housing and providers (links open in new window):
