Providing Affordable Housing for Orlando, Florida

Established in 1938, the Orlando Housing Authority (OHA) is an independent public corporation, funded primarily by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). OHA is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of the City of Orlando. It is managed by a President/CEO. OHA is not a city Agency. OHA has been a Move To Work (MTW) agency since 2011.

Orlando Housing Authority operates with four primary goals:

  • To assist low income individuals, families and the elderly by providing rental housing units in either the public housing or private housing markets through Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV), Single Room Occupancy (SRO) and Public Housing;
  • To administer the HUD-VASH Program in cooperation with the Veterans Administration (VA) to provide eligible veterans with rental housing units in the private housing markets. The VA provides the case management and supportive services;
  • To manage and maintain its housing and each community's public space; and
  • To provide residents with programs and opportunities that promote social and economic enrichment including Move To Work (MTW).

OHA is committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal access to OHA forms, notices, resources and services. If the format of any material/content on this website interferes with your ability to access information, please click here to visit our website accessibility page.
