A waiting list is maintained for the Wellington Public Housing Program. It is currently CLOSED.
Wellington Public Housing rentals are located in Wellington, Colorado. We have 42 rentals with 14 of those designated for seniors only. Most of our homes at Wellington Public Housing are duplexes and fourplexes, with the exception of two single-family homes. Preference is given to applicants who live in Wellington at the time of application.
Proposed Change from Public Housing to Housing Vouchers
Housing Catalyst administers and oversees Wellington Housing Authority’s (WHA) Public Housing portfolio. The federal money for public housing has been dwindling over the last 10 years, leaving us with insufficient money to improve our public housing. Housing Catalyst has assisted the Wellington Housing Authority Board of Commissioners in exploring ways to deal with this financial situation. The best solution is a program called Section 18. This program will allow us to find other sources for funding that we can use to renovate Wellington’s public housing and possibly expand the affordable housing there.
No residents will need to leave their home because of this change. The vouchers will be connected to each home, so any household living in that home will receive rent assistance.
Public Meetings were held in May to discuss these proposed changes. A video of the meeting is available by clicking here.
