The Tallahassee Housing Authority is a quasi-governmental agency established in 1946 by State of Florida Statute 421.04 to provide persons of low-income affordable housing.
The THA administers two programs, public housing and housing choice vouchers. THA operates with both full and part-time staff, provides supportive services to our residents, and coordinates additional services through the family self-sufficiency program. Funding for all programs is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
THA is governed by a volunteer seven member Board of Commissioners; appointed by the City of Tallahassee Commission. Appointed by the Mayor of the City of Tallahassee, the Board serves as the governing officers of the Tallahassee Housing Authority. Through formal adoption of policy, they ensure that the Authority’s purpose and accompanying responsibilities are carried out in a manner that is both efficient and fiscally responsible.
