The Winooski Housing Authority mission is to provide safe, affordable, quality housing to low and moderate income individuals and families while offering supportive services through partnerships with the community that will assist in improving the social and economic well-being of our residents.
The five member Board of Commissioners for the Winooski Housing Authority are appointed by the Mayor of Winooski for five year terms. One Commissioner must be a Winooski Housing Authority program participant.
In 1993, the Winooski Housing Authority became the managing agent for the Chittenden Housing Corporation (CHC) which at the time owned 19 rental units in the Lakeside area of Burlington. With the 2006 purchase of The Courtyard by the Chittenden Housing Corporation, WHA took on the management of an additional 100 units. The Courtyard is a Section 8 subsidized Multi-family property for seniors and disabled families and is located in Winooski.
