About Our Programs
Newmarket Housing Authority offers affordable housing to low to moderate-income families and individuals through two programs: Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Program. You can learn more about each program below. NHA uses a single application for both programs and you may choose to apply for one or both. There is currently a 5 to 8-year waiting list for both programs. To request an application be mailed to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 603-659-5444. Applications can also be printed from the website.
Ernest A. Clark Terrace is a 50-unit development housing eligible families in a mix of one, two, three, and four-bedroom units. When these rental units become available, eligible applicants are selected from the waitlist. Rental amounts are calculated based on the families’ income to provide an affordable option in a desirable community.
Housing Choice Voucher
The Housing Choice Voucher program (formerly known as Section 8) provides assistance for low-income families in the private rental market by providing housing assistance payments directly to the landlord. When a voucher becomes available an eligible applicant is selected from the waitlist. Voucher holders then search for a unit from the private rental market.
