The Gardner Housing Authority (GHA) administers a variety of housing programs sponsored by both the State and Federal Governments.

These programs include:
  • State-Aided Family, Elderly / Handicapped units and shared living in Congregate Elderly Housing (these apartments are owned by the State and managed by the GHA).
    Apply for Pubilc Housing (CHAMP)
  • The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) is the federal government's major program for assisting extremely low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.

    Our preferences are those families that live, work, or go to school full time in: Gardner 01440, Westminster 01473, Hubbardston 01452, Ashburnham 01430, Templeton 01468, East Templeton 01438, and Baldwinville 01436. We use the HUD Income Limits for targeting of: At least 75% of families admitted to the program during a fiscal year must be “extremely low-income families” per HUD regulations.
