The Hialeah Housing Authority is dedicated to providing this community with quality, affordable housing that is decent and safe to eligible families.
We shall serve our clients and all citizens with the highest level of professionalism, compassion and respect.
On February 14, 1967 the Hialeah City Council adopted Resolution Number 2728, which established the Hialeah Housing Authority, an unincorporated instrumentality of the City of Hialeah, duly organized and existing pursuant to the Florida Statutes 421.
The Hialeah Housing Authority is governed by a five member Board of Commissioners, one of which must be a resident or participant of a Federally subsidized housing program. Each Commissioner is nominated by the Mayor of Hialeah and must be ratified by a majority vote of the Hialeah City Council. The Board of Commissioners establishes housing authority policies and determines the hiring and retention of the Executive Director.
The Executive Director is responsible for the day to day operation of the housing authority, the management of its assets and employees, and the implementation of the policies established by the Board of Commissioners. Currently, the Hialeah Housing Authority has over 150 employees and a combined annual operating budget of over 49 million dollars.
The Hialeah Housing Authority provides housing assistance to over 5,000 eligible, low income families through the Affordable Housing Program, Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, Palm Centre, and Public Housing Program. The housing authority is also an important part of the social service network of the City of Hialeah and offers a wealth of non-housing programs to the community.
