Welcome!!

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 our newest development a 92-unit low rise known as the Villa’s at Vinegar Hill. It is ready for leasing and applications are being taken as listed above.

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.

Again, welcome and enjoy navigating through our website!!!

The Springfield Housing Authority (SHA) proudly serves the Springfield and surrounding community by providing affordable housing to a broad range of persons, inclusive of but not limited to, senior citizens, individuals, families, persons with disabilities, etc.
