The history of public housing is marked by economic and social challenges. With the passage of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, the federal government began funding the construction and operations of housing for low-income households. The first public housing developments were constructed shortly thereafter. Much of the public housing stock in Tallahassee is over forty years old and is well-maintained by the housing authority. Over time, we will work toward the redevelopment of our housing stock. A master plan for redevelopment was recently completed for our Orange Avenue Apartments. There’s a link for the master plan below.
Our goal is to provide quality affordable housing for low-to moderate-income households, foster sustainable communities and cultivate opportunities for residents to improve their lives in collaboration with local supportive services. The Tallahassee Housing Authority is working to improve efficiencies so that all of our customers have access to information and services.
