April is Fair Housing Month

A time to celebrate the passage of the Fair Housing Act which prohibits housing discrimination based on race, color, national region, religion, gender, disability, or familial status. The Fair Housing Act works to bring an equal housing experience.


The Springfield Housing Authority is the primary leader in providing quality affordable housing to individuals and families, while encouraging partnerships necessary for residents to develop self-sufficiency and to be productive members of the community.

"As we continue expanding affordable housing in the City of Springfield, we are proud of our most recent new construction development, Genesis Place. This new construction development consists of 41 units and includes homeownership opportunities. Genesis Place is a 'place of new beginnings' for our families.

In 2012, we will continue to address the redevelopment of the Sankey Hi-Rise facility located on West Allen Street as well as expand homeownership opportunities through local, state and national partnerships that are currently being forged.
