The Washington Housing Authority has provided safe, decent, and sanitary housing for the residents of the City of Washington since its establishment by the City of Washington and chartered by the State of North Carolina in 1961.
The Washington Housing Authority has played a vital role in providing housing for the city's most vulnerable residents.
WHA has partnered with various county agencies and entities to make this vision a reality for our families.
