Local Housing Authorities are run by a Board of Commissioners made up of residents of the community in which they are located. A Local Housing Authority is the principal housing advocate within its community, charged with the responsibility to plan and implement a balanced housing program. In addition to planning, advocacy and determining the needs of the low-income population the board has the responsibility for placing the agency’s operations in the context of policy.
All the laws, regulations and local requirements that impact the operations, residents and staff of a local housing authority are placed within the framework of policy by its Board od Commissioners.
The WHA Board of Commissioners consists of five (5) members, four (4) of whom are elected through the town electoral process and one (1) who is appointed by the Governor of Massachusetts.
