The Nahant Housing Authority owns, governs and administers three housing programs at three different locations in the Town of Nahant which is designed to supply applicants with decent, safe and affordable housing. The Board of Commissioners consists of four members elected by Town Election and one member appointed by the Governor.
The Nahant Housing Authority programs provide affordable housing to over 80 residents. The Elderly/Handicapped Housing (Chapter 667) consists of 29 1-bedroom units, located at the Spindrift Building on Nahant Road. Spring and Emerald Roads have Family Housing (Chapter 200) which consists of 7 duplex buildings (14 units) with 2-3 bedroom units. There are 5 units in the one building located on Greystone Road (Chapter 705) which consists of 2-4 bedroom units.
This past year, the Nahant Housing Authority has been busy working on multiple different projects. We completed a vinyl siding project on Emerald Road, and began planning for a vinyl siding project that will take place on Spring Road late Spring 2021. We also began planning for a large scale project to install a backflow preventer and upgrade the fire alarm system in the Spindrift building, which will also being late Spring 2021.
Our continued thanks for the ongoing support from the Town of Nahant’s Administrator, Tony Barletta, Department of Public Works, Police Department, Fire Department and Council on Aging for their assistance to the Authority and all the residents of the Authority.
