The Housing Authority of the Town of Windsor was created in February 1968 by a Cooperative Agreement between the Town of Windsor and the Connecticut Department of Housing enabling the Town of Windsor to provide safe, decent and affordable housing to its elderly and disabled citizens.

This agreement established a Board of Commissioners to operate the Authority and set forth their powers as defined by Connecticut General Statutes. These Commissioners are jointly responsible and accountable for all that the Authority does or fails to do and exercise their powers by establishing policies, establishing budgets, and by directing the operation of the Housing Authority.

The Housing Authority of the Town of Windsor consists of 5 Commissioners appointed by the Town Council for a 5-year term; one of who must be a Tenant. Each year one Commissioner’s term expires and serves until a replacement has been provided. Commissioners serve without compensation and cannot serve on any other Town governmental body, either elected or appointed Board or Commission.

Monthly meetings of the Commissioners are held the last Monday of each month, providing the meeting does not conflict with a legal holiday, in the Authority’s office located at 156 Bloomfield Avenue.

The Commissioners, with the assistance of an executive director and staff, operate two distinct programs under the umbrella of the Housing Authority of the Town of Windsor. These include the Elderly and Disabled Housing Program, located at Millbrook Village and Shad Run Terrace, and the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program. The Elderly and Disabled Housing Program operates under State of Connecticut guidelines; whereas the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program operates under the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development guidelines. These programs, subject to an annual review by State and Federal regulatory agencies, operate according to specific regulations and guidelines. Results of these audits are forwarded to local, state, and federal governmental agencies.
