About Biddeford Housing Authority

The Biddeford Housing was established in September 1985. In 2011, Biddeford was asked to take over as a management agent for Saco Housing Authority. In 2014, Saco & Biddeford Housing was consolidated to become one housing authority under the name of Biddeford Housing. The Housing Authority currently has 156 housing choice vouchers and also administers approximately 400 portability vouchers. Biddeford Housing Authority's local preference is Saco and Biddeford but it also covers Old Orchard Beach, Buxton, Arundel, Lyman, Dayton and Kennebunkport.
The Biddeford Housing Authority, combined with Southern Maine Affordable Housing (a developmental wing of BHA) owns 11 properties throughout Biddeford.
