The Salem Housing Authority (SHA) plans to open a new SHA Project-Based Site-Based Waiting list effective June 13, 2023. If you have an active application for the Salem Housing Authority’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program Tenant-Based waitlist (s), the SHA invites you, should you qualify, to also apply for SHA’s PBV site-based waiting list for the New Point Family Apartments.

New applicants may apply for the SHA PVB waitlist beginning on June 13, 2023, and may apply to any other open and available SHA wait lists at any time. Applications are available on the SHA website and in person at our Section 8 Office at 136 Canal St., Suite 2, Salem and at our administrative offices at 27 Charter Street, Salem, MA 01970. (978) 744-4431.

Applications for people with disabilities will be mailed or sent electronically upon request made to the SHA. Failure to apply for this new PBV list will have no effect on current selections for any other SHA waitlist.

Important Notice: If you or any member of your household is/are a person(s) with a disability, and you need assistance, you may request a reasonable accommodation by contacting the SHA. If you or a member of your household is a victim of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking and need certain circumstances considered or reviewed as mitigating circumstances relating to your application, you will have the opportunity to inform the SHA.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of State and Federal equal housing opportunity laws and policies. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap/disability, familial status, national origin, age, ancestry, veteran status/member of the armed forces, genetic information, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, receipt of public assistance or any other State or federal protected class.

*Note: If you are already on the SHA’s existing PBV list for Pequot Highlands, you will be automatically added to this new list, and you do not need to reapply.
