The Housing Authority of Washington County has an at-large vacancy on its board of commissioners.
The authority manages rental assistance programs in Washington County and senior housing communities in Boonsboro, Hancock, Smithsburg and Williamsport. It helps families graduate from rental assistance. Its various home-ownership programs provide opportunities for moderate-income families and paths to home ownership for lower-income families.
The seven-member board sets the vision for the organization.
The authority is looking for volunteers who share the goal of making housing affordable for all in Washington County and who would welcome the challenge of working with community partners to make that goal a reality.
Its mission is to provide decent, safe, affordable housing solutions that strengthen the community by focusing on local needs.
