The Kindersley Housing Authority (KHA) is responsible for ensuring efficient and fair administration of social housing properties and projects within Kindersley. This includes keeping housing in good shape; administering tenant, property, and financial records; hiring managers to oversee housing operations; and other responsibilities as mandated by agreement with the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.
The Housing Authority operates under the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC), which was formed in 1973 when the provincial government passed The Saskatchewan Housing Corporation Act. Since that time, the SHC has been responsible for delivering housing services across the entire province. The mandate of the SHC is to promote independence and self-sufficiency by providing housing and housing services to people who could not otherwise afford adequate, safe, and secure shelter.

The KHA is managed by a volunteer board of directors consisting of non-elected officials who live in or around Kindersley. Boards are primarily responsible for three key areas: governance, program delivery, and property management. Board members are not expected to attend to administrative or maintenance tasks personally. The Board meets 11 times per year (no meeting in July). Terms are 3 years for new appointments, and 2 years for re-appointments.
