It is the mission of Lewiston Housing to provide dignified, safe, and affordable housing free of discrimination to those eligible persons who are in need of housing assistance and, in so doing, promote economic uplift and personal growth.
Created in 1963, Lewiston Housing is the municipal housing authority for the City of Lewiston. We are an experienced developer of affordable housing and have used a variety of structures and funding sources, including Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) partnerships, conventional and federal financing, as well as other public and private sources. Currently, Lewiston Housing provides management, maintenance and resident services for 466 units of Public Housing, LIHTC, and market rate housing, and administers approximately 1200 Housing Choice vouchers. Lewiston Housing is a perennial High Performer per HUD’s operational performance standards. In addition, we facilitate multiple senior and family programs including 4H, Seniors Plus lunches, WIC, ESL classes, afterschool homework help, and Bates student participation, which includes elementary art, aspiration programming, cooking, and science learning.
