Connecting WV families
one home at a time

Welcome. The West Virginia Association of Housing Agencies fosters, supports and promotes the efforts of Public Housing Agencies and affordable housing organizations in the furthering of affordable housing and community redevelopment in West Virginia through the exchange of ideas, the promotion of inter-agency cooperation, affordable housing legislative and policy development, and education and training.

A note from the WVAHA President...

Thank you for visiting the West Virginia Association of Housing Agencies website.  The Association has a proud history in developing housing professionals and community leaders, educating the public of the need for affordable housing, and advocating for responsible public policy and funding for low-income housing. Over the past eight decades, West Virginia’s housing authorities have made important contributions in our communities; not least of which includes meeting local needs and making a difference in the lives of the families we serve. Currently, the Association is comprised of 33 housing agencies from across West Virginia, who provide over 40,000 West Virginia families access to safe, decent and affordable homes, through the public housing and housing voucher programs, funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD.)  

The Association’s goal through this website is to promote the public’s understanding of housing programs, help visitors understand our purpose and history, provide timely information regarding upcoming trainings, conferences and activities and promote the good work done by public housing agencies across West Virginia.  As President of the Association, I am confident that this web site will become a resource for our members, families searching for housing and those interested in promoting low-income housing in the Mountain State. 

No doubt change is constant, but it is my hope that your visit to our website will prove both productive and beneficial.  That being said, I am always open to new ideas regarding how the Association might improve upon its services.  Therefore, I encourage visitors to email me at with any comments or suggestions. 

Again, thank you for your interest in the West Virginia Association of Housing Agencies.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.
