About Old Town Housing Authority

The Housing Authority of the City of Old Town was founded in 1970 with a five-member board of commissioners. Today, the Housing Authority has a seven-member board of commissioners including two resident commissioners. Its mission then and now is to provide safe and sanitary housing opportunities to low-income people in the community.

With a staff of 13 full and part-time employees, the Housing Authority oversees 180 federally subsidized apartments plus 209 Vouchers for the federally subsidized Housing Choice Voucher Program. In addition, the Housing Authority administers the Congregate Housing Services Program as well as a Family Self-Sufficiency Program and a Homeownership Option Program for Housing Choice Voucher Program participants. Its goal continues to be to retain these traditional services and to find ways to provide new services and housing opportunities to the community.

In its management of family and elderly housing, it is the policy of the Housing Authority to determine and establish eligibility and rent requirements in order to provide improved living conditions for very low and low-income families. This is accomplished by keeping rent payments at an affordable level and by providing opportunities for upward mobility of families who desire to achieve self-sufficiency.

The Housing Authority is service-directed in its administration of its housing programs and exercises and demonstrates a high level of professionalism while providing housing services to the families within its jurisdiction. The Housing Authority is continuously assessing its program and consistently striving to make improvements.
