Housing Authority Teams with Area Agency on Aging for Holiday Events
Bradford County Housing Authority’s Amp II recently teamed with Bradford County’s Area Agency on Aging to provide some holiday cheer.
Building Case Manager, Amanda Storrs worked with AAA Senior Center Mangers in both Towanda and Wyalusing to coordinate holiday events happening in centers located in Authority-owned buildings. The turnout was great and all of the tenants who attended had a jolly old time!

Additionally, the Tioga Authority in cooperation with the Redevelopment Authority administers HUD Community Development Block Grants.

The Commissioners enacted resolutions pursuant to these laws declaring a need for each Authority locally and appointing a five-man board to govern its affairs. The dates the Authorities were formed are as follows:
Redevelopment Authority of the County of Tioga January 1963
Housing Authority of the County of Tioga April 1965
Bradford County Housing Authority September 1969
