Located at 12 Alice Burke Way, in Westfield Massachusetts, the Westfield Housing Authority (WHA), along with the City of Westfield, work together to meet the needs of housing and improvements to the City’s public housing inventory.
The WHA tenants currently participate in one active tenant association. They provide input on management issues in public housing projects and help to identify and prioritize maintenance and resident service needs. The WHA also operates 62 units of the state family public housing at Colonial Pine Acres, 26 units under its state Chapter 705 Program, 339 state aided Elderly/Disabled units in the 667 Program, and 14 units for the disabled under the state 689 program. Additionally, the WHA owns, operates, manages, and maintains five hundred and thirty-one state-aided housing, while also subsidizes two hundred and eighty-four federally funded section 8 vouchers.
The primary need for public housing is for the modernization and ongoing maintenance of the older public housing stock.
