General Information:
Housing Authority: Mission Statement: To assist low and moderate income families with safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and improve the quality of their lives. The Housing Authority is committed to operating in an efficient, ethical and professional manner. The Housing Authority will create and maintain partnerships with its clients and appropriate community agencies in order to accomplish this mission. This program is funded by the federal government and administered by the Housing Authority.  It assists participants with rental payments with private landlords rather than government housing.  When a voucher is issued, the participant can look for a rental unit in our jurisdiction which includes the towns of Mansfield, Coventry, Willington, Ashford and Chaplin that meets the Fair Market Rent as set forth by the federal government.  The participant is required to live in our jurisdiction for the first year.  The apartment is inspected by the Housing Authority, a lease is signed between the Landlord and the participant, and a Housing Assistance Program (HAP) agreement is signed between the Landlord and the Housing Authority. Landlords are welcome to call the Housing Authority if they are looking for tenants or would like to be put on our list of housing opportunities in the area.   We are always happy to explain the program in more detail, answer any questions landlords may have, or provide actually documents for the landlord’s review.  The voucher program works well and has advantages for both landlords and tenants. The waiting list is open periodically.  When the list is open, a link to the pre-application will be activated on this website, a pre-application will be printed in the Chronicle and available will also be available at Participants are chosen by lottery and then by preference points. Hours: Monday through Thursday: 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
