The Springfield Housing Authority is the primary leader in providing quality affordable housing to individuals and families, while encouraging partnerships necessary for residents to develop self-sufficiency and to be productive members of the community.
The Springfield Housing Authority is “changing lives one key at a time” and we are proud of the service that we provide to the affordable housing community within the City of Springfield and surrounding areas. The need for affordable housing continues to grow, and the SHA is working diligently through public and private partnerships in addressing this growing need.
I am excited about the new construction that will begin soon, as we are preparing for the construction of a 92-unit five-story low rise development. Known as ‘The Villas at Vinegar Hill’, this development will be situated at the former site of Sankey Hi-Rise twin towers, which is located near downtown on the corner of Spring and Allen.
The Springfield Housing Authority is always looking at ways in which we can make the lives of those we serve -- better. For the next few years the Springfield Housing Authority has adopted as its theme: Bridging the Affordable Housing G.A.P. (Growing, Advocating, Preserving). Our goal is to “grow” housing through new construction and partnerships with affordable housing developers; “advocate” on behalf of clients for public policies and laws that do not have an adverse impact on the constituents we serve; and “preserve” current housing stock that is already designated as affordable.
