Welcome to the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority website!
We are located in the historic city of Saratoga Springs, New York often referred to as the “city in the country”. The Saratoga Springs Housing Authority was established in 1952 and has two primary locations. Stonequist Apartments, constructed in 1970 is a 10-story high rise located just blocks from downtown Saratoga Springs and the heart of the business district. Our family sites, Jefferson and Vanderbilt Terraces are located just a few blocks from the historic Saratoga Race Course.
Here at the SSHA we provide safe, decent housing for elderly families, persons with disabilities on fixed incomes as well as working families who are moving towards self-sufficiency. The SSHA also administers the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program and Veteran’s Affairs Supported Housing (VASH) Programs. Our staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of our families while assisting the community with implementing the long-term goals for affordable housing. In 2020 we began the development of two new affordable housing projects. The Promenade, is a 63-unit project comprised of a 4-story building with 1- and 2-bedroom apartments behind the Stonequist Apartments, and three townhouse style buildings comprised on 1,2- and 3-bedroom units which face West Circular Street. The second project is called the SRDI Project and consists of two (2) twelve-unit buildings located within the grounds of our Terrace properties. These are state funded projects and information regarding eligibility is located on this website. The SSHA also realizes that our existing public housing units are in need of extensive rehabilitation and are in the process of identifying the funding to make that happen. In total the SSHA will be providing assisted housing for over 500 families in the city of Saratoga Springs.
I consider it a privilege to be the Director of this agency and take my responsibilities very seriously. First and foremost, of these is ensuring the safety and security of our residents. This is why the SSHA upholds strict lease enforcement standards. We expect our residents to respect not only their neighbors, but the property as well. After all, receiving housing subsidy in this beautiful city is a privilege and should be treated as such. Our residents take pride in their community and do their part in maintaining SSHA property so that we blend in with the surrounding neighborhoods.
