Overview


The Westfield Housing Authority (WHA), along with the City of Westfield, work together to meet the needs of housing and improvements to the City’s public housing inventory. The Westfield Housing Authority provides safe, decent and sanitary housing for 1,104 low income families and elderly residents. The authority spends over $70,000 for the City of Westfield Economy.  The WHA tenants currently participate in two active tenant associations. They provide input on management issues in public housing projects and help to identify and prioritize maintenance and resident service needs. The WHA operates 62 units of the state family public housing at Colonial Pine Acres, 26 units under its state Chapter 705 Program and 14 units for the disabled under the state 689 program. The primary need for public housing is for the modernization and ongoing maintenance of the older public housing stock.
