Who Are We

Established in 1986, HCA is a non-profit community development corporation committed to assisting Arlington residents with housing-related concerns.  Our mission is to support social and economic diversity, through affordable housing programs, for the Town and residents of Arlington.  HCA provides housing for low and moderate income members of our community and advocates for expansion of affordable housing opportunities in town.

Since 2000, the Arlington Board of Selectmen has made a strategic decision to prioritize affordable housing through allocation of the town’s CDBG dollars. With that support, HCA has been able to grow as an organization and to increase the town’s inventory of affordable housing.

In an effort to keep our community diverse and stable, our Board of Directors, committee members, volunteers and small professional staff work closely with diverse stakeholders including Arlington residents, town government, the Affordable Housing Task Force, the Arlington Housing lenders, public and private funders and other housing professionals.

HCA provides the following programs:

  • Affordable Rental Housing
  • Homelessness Prevention Program
  • Housing Advocacy/ Community Outreach
  • HCA Membership
  • Housing Information and Referral
