The Housing Authority of the City of Willimantic is a "quasi-governmental agency". While being neither a Town, State, or Federal agency, its Commissioners are appointed by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Windham and it is regulated by both the Federal and State governments. It owns its developments in its own right, but the use and disposal of the property are restricted by covenants with either the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), and/or the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA).
It is the mission of the Housing Authority to promote affordable housing, economic opportunity and a suitable living environment free from discrimination. The Housing Authority manages 576 units within the Town of Windham. These include the following developments: John Ashton Towers, Wilbur Cross Apartments, Nathan Hale Terrace, Father Honan Terrace, Jonathan Trumbull Terrace, Hevrin Terrace, Terry Court and Marcella Eastman Terrace. The Housing Authority also manages a Housing Choice Voucher Program which subsidizes approximately 500 families in the Town of Windham.
