Welcome to Bennington Housing Authority

The Bennington Housing Authority was established as a public agency in 1970 by the Board of Aldermen to provide affordable housing opportunities in the Town of Bennington for low income seniors, persons with disabilities and families.

BHA owns and manages 195 apartments in four affordable housing developments with project-based Section 8 vouchers to assure affordability, regardless of income.  We also administer 260 tenant-based Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers, which enable low income households to afford appropriate housing of their choice.

In collaboration with community partners, BHA supports and promotes the availability of programs and services to enable its residents and Section 8 program participants to maintain successful residency, improve the quality of their lives and pursue self-sufficiency.

We hope that our website assists the community and households seeking affordable housing by providing information on our affordable housing opportunities, the application process and policy and procedures.
