Lexington Housing Assistance Board (LexHAB)

From the Board Charge

The role of LexHAB is to expand the Town’s inventory of affordable housing for rental to families of low and moderate income, and with preference when possible to those who work and live in Lexington. LexHAB’s inventory of affordable units consists of scattered-site, singles and duplexes, condominium units, and family-style homes. 

The Board was established by an Act of the Commonwealth to investigate and implement alternatives for providing affordable housing in Lexington for persons of low, moderate, and middle income. The powers and duties of this Board are intended to supplement and not limit those of the Lexington Housing Authority.
