The West Haven Housing Authority’s goal is to provide decent, safe, and sanitary rental housing for eligible seniors, families and individuals and provide opportunities, promote self-sufficiency and economic independence for West Haven Housing Authority participants. In order to achieve this mission, WHHA will:
the Public Housing Authority (PHA) management, service delivery efforts
through effective and efficient management of PHA staff.
Provide the opportunity for economically disadvantaged families and elderly individuals to gain entry into the private housing market by giving them parity with moderate income families competing within the same market by making them, for all intents and purposes financially equal.
Administer the program in a fair and impartial manner on an equal opportunity basis for all.
