The Tallahassee Housing Authority (Authority) is a public entity that was formed in 1946 to provide federally subsidized housing and housing assistance to low-income families, within the Tallahassee, Leon County area. The Authority was established as a result of the United States Housing Act of 1937 and is dedicated to providing and advocating for attractive and affordable living environments for low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Programs are subject to the requirements of Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
The Authority is governed by a volunteer seven-person Board of Commissioners; appointed by the City of Tallahassee Commission. Through formal adoption of policy, they ensure that the Authority is fiscally responsible and operates in an efficient manner.
The Authority consists of three (3) distinctive residential Public Housing communities, (aka Asset Management Properties or AMPs), located in the incorporated areas of Tallahassee, Florida. There are a total of 549 residential units consisting of 41 single-family detached homes, and 12 duplex units. The Authority also owns and maintains a 93-unit Low-Income Housing Tax Credit apartment community.
