Mass. Alliance of HUD Tenants
The Mass Alliance of HUD Tenants (MAHT) is a tenant run organization that organizes and supports tenant associations to preserve affordable housing and improve living conditions throughout eastern and central Massachusetts. MAHT is composed of 40-50 member tenant groups in buildings that are privately owned and subsidized by the federal government to provide affordable housing for low-income families. MAHT organizes, trains, and provides technical assistance to HUD tenant groups, currently representing over 4,200 low-income families in Eastern Massachusetts. By joining MAHT, tenant groups increase their collective bargaining strength with owners, management, HUD and other agencies.
