The Greeley/Weld Housing Greeley/Weld Housing Authority is an independent governmental agency with a board of commissioners supervising the administration and financial policies. This board is currently seeking new members to represent Greeley who have a passion for making affordable housing attainable for those in need.
The housing authority's goal is to provide safe, decent, affordable housing opportunities to lower-income families and individuals free from discrimination. The authority provides housing assistance for more than 1,000 Weld County families. As of March 2021, the authority provided rent assistance to 930 individuals or families at the cost of $700,650. In addition, another 265 families lived under a roof managed by the organization. Approximately 42 percent of the Section 8 (rental assistance) program clients are either elderly or handicapped.
The Greeley/Weld Housing Authority is actually two housing authorities co-located and operating with one staff and board. Both Weld County and the City of Greeley have separate contracts with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide housing services for the community. The nine-member board has five members appointed by the City of Greeley and four recommended by Weld County Commissioners.
For this board, applicants cannot be a property owner currently conducting business with the Housing Authority. Apply online to be an active member of the Housing Authority or other boards and commissions. Greeley's Boards and Commissions program offers 23 different interest groups for residents to engage in and make recommendations for the city. Joining is a great way to influence public policy and programming decisions that can affect the entire city.
