The Board of Commissioners of the Hialeah Housing Authority is appointed by the Mayor of the City of Hialeah, Florida. Each Commissioner is appointed to a four-year term or to complete the term of the Commissioner they have replaced. A Commissioner can be re-appointed for as many terms as the Mayor of the City may see necessary. If the Resident Commissioner should lose his/her housing assistance from the Hialeah Housing Authority, he/she would then be replaced.

The Commissioners have many responsibilities that deal with decision making. A major responsibility of the Board is the contracting of the Executive Director. The Executive Director serves as the Secretary to the Board of Commissioners. Additionally, they set and approve policies to be implemented and oversee the operations of the Authority.
