Housing Commission

Wyoming Housing Commission

The mission of the Wyoming Housing Commission is to promote adequate and affordable housing, economic opportunity and a suitable living environment free from discrimination.

The Wyoming Housing Commission (WHC) owns 195 public housing units. They are located at Westwood Apartments, Waldon Woods and at several other locations throughout Wyoming. Individuals and families pay rent based upon their income directly to the WHC.

The WHC administers approximately 1,100 Housing Choice Vouchers (Section-8) within Kent County and part of Ottawa County. The families and individuals who receive the vouchers pay a portion of their income for rent and the WHC pays the remainder (up to the limits set by HUD (Housing and Urban Development)) directly to the landlords each month.

The Housing Commission board meets every third Tuesday (except April and July) at 1:00 p.m. in the Community Room at Westwood Apartments, 2450 36th St. S.W.  The board members consist of Jennifer Stowell, Bruce Robey, and Diana Lanser with two current vacancies.
