About Us

The aim of the West Plains Housing Authority is to provide safe and affordable housing to low-income households.  Established in 1968, the WPHA has a strong history of providing housing opportunities within the city limits of West Plains, MO.  All applicants must fall below set income limits, which are updated annually.  We strive to reach our goals through our dedicated staff, which is the heart of our agency.  The WPHA offers 273 Public Housing units, and a Section 8 Rental Assistance program capable of assisting up to 205 households.  Applicants may choose to be added to the waiting lists for both programs.  Funding for the WPHA is provided through HUD’s operating subsidy, housing assistance payments, and the capital fund program. Tenant rent collected from public housing units and grant opportunities are other sources of funding.
