Putnam County Housing Authority to close local office

Thursday, June 16, 2022

The Putnam County Housing Authority will be closing the doors of its East Franklin Street office on June 30.

However, the housing authority’s local programs will be administered through the office of the Crawfordsville Housing Authority beginning Friday, July 1.

A letter sent to the authority’s landlords and tenants as well as the Banner Graphic spelled out what the change will mean, noting it should be minimal.

“The transfer of HUD programs administered through the Putnam County Housing Authority will be administered by the Crawfordsville Housing Authority,” the letter notes. “All tenants rents will still be made payable to the Putnam County Housing Authority.”

Most importantly, the letter notes that tenants who rely on Section 8 vouchers for rent should not experience a disruption.

“There will be disruption to landlord payments, current tenants or their housing voucher,” the letter notes. “Please know that both housing authorities are doing everything possible to make this a smooth transition.”

Finally, the letter notes that all communication should now go through the Crawfordsville office, which may be reached at:
