New Massachusetts Changes Relating to Veterans and Public Housing
Massachusetts lawmakers made three changes to state law regarding veterans in state-aided public housing in the areas of Tenant Selection and certain Rent Calculations. The new law makes the same Veterans Preference that is currently used in the state Public Family housing program available to applicants for Public Elderly/Handicapped housing program. This means that applicants for Elderly/Handicapped housing will no longer have to reside in the community in order to receive a Veteran's Preference in tenant selection. The law also changes how much of a veteran who is unemployable because of a service connected disability. Housing Authorities now must exclude all federal disability compensation over $1,800 received by unemployable veterans.
