Public Housing

The Stratford Housing Authority owns and manages 514 Federal and State Apartment units. You can view these units in the Housing Gallery Section. The Federal Program contains 301 apartments (101 family and 200 elderly) and the State Program contains 213 apartments (100 family and 113 elderly).

Although the Federal and State units are regulated under different programs, they are very similar in income eligibility, and most regulations, policies and lease requirements.

Rent Stratification is the methodology used in our State properties and structures base rents to maximize rental revenue. It allows for variable rents by income level according to the Area Median Income while continuing to provide affordable housing to all eligible income levels. Since there are no operating subsidies built into these programs, rent stratification is vital to the sustainability of these properties.


The Authority strives to maintain its apartments so that they are aesthetically pleasing while providing a decent, safe and secure living environment. To this end, the Authority has an ongoing modernization program to enhance the physical structures, carefully screens applicants to ensure a quality resident population, and adheres to strict lease enforcement.
