Keene Housing

General Information

Keene Housing (KH) has used its MTW authority to develop the SPECTRUM Housing Program, which has been in operation for 15 years. The goals of the program include increasing the share of residents making progress toward self-sufficiency, improving the quality of assisted housing stock, providing a full SPECTRUM of housing options for applicants, increasing homeownership among residents, enhancing KH's capacity to plan and deliver effective programs and increasing resident satisfaction. KH reports that its MTW program has positively impacted residents, with a significant increase in average income.

KH originally administered approximately 200 public housing units and 600 Housing Choice Voucher units. However, KH undertook a portfolio transformation to replace its public housing program with an expanded Section 8 subsidy program.
