To improve lives by providing quality, affordable housing options and promoting education and economic self-sufficiency.

The Houston Housing Authority provides affordable homes and services to more than 58,000 low-income Houstonians, including over 17,000 families housed through the Housing Choice Voucher Program and another 5,700 living in 25 public housing and tax credit developments around the city. HHA also administers the nation’s third largest voucher program exclusively serving homeless veterans. 

The Agency does more than just provide safe, affordable homes.  We also offer a host of programs to help public housing residents and voucher holders increase their education, live healthier lives and reach their economic goals. Whether through an HHA funded activity like the Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) or our affiliate nonprofit Houston Housing Resources Inc., the Agency strives to provide the low-income Houstonians we serve with a full menu of opportunities to help them achieve their goals.
