Housing


iStock_000016915592XSmallWaterbury Housing Authority’s mission is to provide safe and decent affordable housing for low-income residents. We offer two main housing programs: the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Public Housing.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a rental assistance program. HCV residents rent directly from private landlords and their rental payments are subsidized through the voucher program. The HCV waitlist is currently closed to new applicants. Advertisements will be placed in local newspapers announcing its re-opening.

Public housing is rental properties managed and maintained by the housing authority. Waterbury Housing acts as the landlord.

WHA’s inventory also includes accessible housing for persons with disabilities.
