Topic - Public Housing Authorities

This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Public Housing Authorities.

Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) - or Public Housing Agencies - are organizations created by state or local governments. They administer the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Low-Income Public Housing Program or other programs engaged in the development or administration of low-rent public housing. A PHA is responsible for managing and operating its local public housing program. PHAs may also operate other types of housing programs and provide other services including homeownership opportunities for qualified families; employment training opportunities and other special training and employment programs for residents; and support programs for the elderly.
