Welcome to Bethel Housing Authority

The Housing Authority of the Town of Bethel (Bethel Housing Authority or BHA) is a quasi-public corporation that was established in 1976. The Authority is independent from the Town of Bethel and is regulated by the Federal U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Connecticut State Department of Housing (DOH). Administrative support for our state properties is provided by the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA). A Board of five Commissioners, appointed by the Town Council, is responsible for oversight and establishing policy.  

We receive federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 8 program, the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program (USDA/RD) and state assistance from the Connecticut Housing and Finance Authority to provide low- and moderate-income housing for eligible applicants that wish to live in our apartment complexes.

The mission of the Authority is to provide safe, affordable housing to low- and moderate-income senior citizens 62 and older, individuals and families.

The Authority owns and manages 105 units which consists of Reynolds Ridge E 133, Reynolds Ridge E 166 and Phineas Park

Where are we located?

Our office is located in the Town of Bethel, Connecticut, at our Reynolds Ridge senior housing complex. Two of our housing complexes make up our Reynolds Ridge facility and an additional complex, Phineas Park, our low income multi-family facility, is located a short distance away near the center of Bethel.
