Lycoming Housing was chartered in 1948 by resolution of the Lycoming County Commissioners. Our mission was and remains today to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing to low-income residents and offer supportive services that will enable residents to ultimately reach self-sufficiency. Lycoming Housing is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. We currently manage 468 public housing units located at 9 different locations throughout the county. Additionally, we partner with many local landlords to provide support and management of 675 Section 8 vouchers. Lycoming Housing also provides homeownership opportunities to qualified applicants through our Section 32 Homeownership Plan.
We, as a public agency, with support of our Board of Directors and a commitment from our dedicated staff, have a shared responsibility to provide results-oriented, quality work and services for all our clients. Lycoming Housing, together with our residents, local government, community agencies, and the citizens of Lycoming County are committed to developing partnerships to maintain and improve neighborhood standards. We are focused on ensuring we remain engaged within our community and doing our very best to help enrich the overall quality of life for our entire county.
