"Mutual Housing Association" is a term that can cover many different ideas.

Sometimes it means a collection of independent resident-controlled properties. In most cases, though, MHAs  are very similar to Resident-Controlled Rentals with two differences. First, MHAs often have a mission of continuing to acquire and develop new properties. Because of this, MHAs often have multiple sites scattered around a metropolitan area. Second, MHAs often have their own management company, which may include community organizers for the Association.

There are no operating MHAs in Massachusetts, but there are at least three in Connecticut. Most MHAs in the United States were initiated and are supported by the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation.
