Annual Tenant Survey
Every year, MA Housing distributes a tenant survey. The survey is an opportunity for tenants to provide feedback anonymously to MA Housing on the services provided. Surveys, where possible will be translated into the major community languages.
The information gathered from the surveys is then compiled into a report made available to all tenants, employees and the Board of Directors. MA Housing uses these results to monitor and to continually improve the services that MA Housing provides.
