Family Housing Resources

Welcome to the online resident resource center of the Oshkosh and Winnebago County Housing Authority Scattered Site Public Housing Program. Residents of our scattered site programming who reside in our agency's 2-5 bedroom homes, townhomes and duplexes can find forms, policy information, and tools on this page to help them succeed in their home.

Note the resources on this page are not applicable to residents in Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher or Cumberland Court programs.

Much of the Scattered Site interaction with your property manager can be done digitally and by email. Make sure you have reported your current email address to the Housing Authority, and then be sure to check your email regularly. If you are not seeing your manager's emails, be sure to first save the email as a contact and safe sender, and then check other filter boxes for any missed emails.
