The gross income of all family members may not exceed State income limits. Eligible/qualified residents of State-aided elderly housing pay no more than 30% of their monthly net (adjusted) income for rent.

In order to qualify for State-Aided Public Housing administered by the Stoneham Housing Authority, you must have a net income in the following range:

Family Size – 1 person Net Income Limit - $70,750

Family Size – 2 people Net Income Limit - $80,850

Once you are determined eligible, you will be placed on our waiting list. If you are a Stoneham Resident and can walk up stairs, the wait will usually be under a year; but if you require a first floor or are not a resident, you may be waiting several years or more.

Residents are serviced by the Town of Stoneham Council on Aging and Mystic Valley Elder Services, as well as a local Tenant Organization which runs Bingo, flea markets, puzzles, coffee hour, cook-outs, etc. at Finnegan Hall located on Duncklee Avenue. All residents are encouraged to utilize these services as most are free of charge and are a great way to be involved and interact with other residents.
