The Tallahassee Housing Authority Public Housing waiting list is organized in such a manner to allow THA to accurately identify and select families in the proper order, according to its admissions policies. THA will process all applicants on the waiting list prior to the adoption of the lottery system according to date and time of the original application and the size bedroom needed. Currently, the Public Housing waiting list is closed for all bedroom sizes, and THA is not accepting applications for this program. Before the waiting list is scheduled to reopen, notice will be provided to the public.
The THA administers four housing programs, Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8), Affordable Housing, and Veteran's Assistance. Resident Programs (FSS and Resident Opportunities Self-Sufficiency are also available to THA residents.
THA has a full time certified maintenance program and its own Finance Department. The overall policy making authority is the seven member Board of Commissioners. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides funding.
