Mission Statement

The Pittsfield Housing Authority (PHA) is committed to providing a full-range of safe, secure, suitable, and appropriate affordable housing opportunities to extremely low, very-low, and low-income family, elderly, and disabled households in a fair manner. The PHA is committed to assisting all residents who are moving from welfare-to-work with affordable housing opportunities that do not act as disincentives to economic advancement. The PHA is committed to improving its federal conventional public housing developments and attempting to provide and support wider access to affordable housing opportunities throughout the entire community. The PHA is committed to fair and non-discriminatory practices throughout all of its housing programs and activities.

What We Do

The Pittsfield Housing Authority provides subsidized housing. As a public agency PHA administers two distinct housing programs – project or development based housing (Public Housing), and voucher based housing (Rent Assistance).
