The primary mission of the Southington Housing Authority is to create and preserve affordable housing for elderly individuals (62 years or older) on a low income. Housing is also provided to younger persons who are deemed disabled by the Social Security Administration and meet the State of Connecticut guidelines. The yearly income limits correspond to the percentage of area median income established by HUD (currently single occupancy, $47,600 and double occupancy, $54,400). The Authority continues to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing and to provide programs and resources for its residents to assist them in maintaining independent living styles in affordable housing.
The Housing Authority operates under the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut and in compliance with the regulations of the State Department of Economic Development. The operation of Southington's Housing Authority is overseen by Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA). Appointment of the five-member Board of Commissioners is made by the Town Manager. The Commissioners meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the office located at 43 Academy Street. The office is open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Housing units are located at General Pulaski Terrace, 6 Carter Lane, Plantsville; DiCaprio Forgione Terrace, 408 Main Street, Southington; Joseph A. Zdunczyk Terrace, 500 Pleasant Street, Southington; and Lincoln Lewis Terrace, 43 Academy St., Southington.
