The Lowell Housing Authority was founded in 1937 and throughout its history has proudly striven for and achieved the highest rating from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The LHA has served and continues to serve the residents of the City of Lowell in times of crisis, as well as in times of prosperity. From the time of its creation, the LHA has never wavered from its commitment to provide safe, affordable housing for the people who need it most. Neither has the LHA ever shirked its responsibilities or shied away from new ventures. The Lowell Housing Authority continues to reorganize itself in anticipation of the changing needs of the community it serves and continuing financial restraints of a public subsidy corporation.
