About the RHA

Revere Housing Authority provides housing assistance to low income residents through the management of HUD programs such as Low Rent Public Housing and the Housing Choice Voucher Program – Section 8 and State programs such as State Public Housing and the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program. These programs are income based and the eligibility guidelines are set by HUD or DHCD, respectively. There may be waiting lists for rentals or vouchers and at times the lists may close to new applicants based on the size of and length of wait on the lists. If you are in need of housing assistance in the area please contact the Housing Authority directly to obtain more information about eligibility requirements, availability of rentals or vouchers, the status of any waiting lists and their application procedures.

Executive Director
Tricia Duffy
Director for Financial Operations
As Director for Financial Operations, with over twenty of years of working at the RHA, I work closely with department leaders to implement practices that are best for the RHA and the residents. Best practices and initiatives can reduce costs and enable more time to be spent on assessment of finances, personnel and tenant issues, and allow staff to function on a higher level.

Dean Harris
Director of Maintenance and Modernization
RHA’s Maintenance Department has been working diligently on numerous modernization projects as well as daily repairs, vacant unit turnovers, and preventative measures to ensure a safe and secure living environment for RHA tenants. Staff has successfully met Mother Nature’s demand over the past year with its quick response to cleaning and repairing damage after the rare occurrence of a tornado and maintained a high task condition and standard during the winter’s snow inundation. RHA has also maintained its status as a high performer as a result of the hard work put into our state and federal unit/site inspections.

Alyssa DiMaria
Mixed Population Service Coordinator
This year is Alyssa’s first year serving as Mixed Population Coordinator. RHA has an amazing group of tenants. It has been a pleasure to provide services/ supports to this community and to get to know tenants through home visits, meeting tenants at their weekly hair cut or foot doctor appointments in their buildings, or waiting for the weekly bus to grocery shop. Alyssa has been able to reestablish a relationship with Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department to provide seniors with the Senior Identification Program and hopes to expand programs with the Department by instituting the Children’s Fingerprinting Program (stay tuned!). She has also initiated a partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank, forging the way for the Brown Bag Program that provides a bag of groceries each month for primarily seniors and some families. RHA families also participated in the first annual Playground Safety Essay and Poster contested hosted by the HAI Group and is proud to share that RHA families who participated placed third in all three categories with a prize of Walmart gift cards. Alyssa is looking forward to continuing current relationships and establishing new partnerships with community organizations to ensure that tenants are aware of and connected with supports and resources available to them.
