The Chester Housing Authority (CHA) was chartered in 1937. Today it owns and operates or co-manages twelve housing developments, over 2,500 families, and senior citizens. The CHA assists 1,600 families through its administration of the Housing Choice Voucher Program; approximately 500 owners have invested in that program. Additionally, the CHA has developed 104 units for first-time homeownership.
Our mission is to provide quality, safe, and affordable housing for low and moderate-income households in a discrimination-free environment. In doing so, we strive to integrate CHA residents and developments into the neighboring communities and to serve as a catalyst for revitalization and development for participant families in the city of Chester, Pennsylvania.
