The World Around Jae and Beyond

Established in 1939, the Montgomery Housing Authority (MHA) has played a crucial role in providing affordable housing solutions for the residents of Montgomery, Alabama.

During the New Deal era, public housing construction funded by the Public Works Administration (PWA) not only addressed the critical need for affordable housing but also served as an economic stimulus, creating employment opportunities for local communities.

One significant announcement from MHA is the temporary closure of the Public Housing Waiting List, effective from Monday, May 22, 2023. During this period, MHA will not accept any new applications. MHA further explains on its webpage:

As of Monday, May 22, 2023, the Public Housing Waiting list will be closed until further notice. No applications will be accepted during this time. A notice will be posted 10 days prior to reopening the waiting list. [source]

To provide an overview of MHA's current impact, let's delve into some key statistics. MHA currently houses approximately 12,583 individuals, emphasizing their commitment to providing stable and affordable housing options for the Montgomery community. This is made possible through the operation of 1,187 public housing units, catering to the specific needs of families in need.

In addition to public housing units, MHA also supports 3,073 voucher families. The voucher program, often referred to as Section 8, enables eligible individuals and families to access privately owned rental properties while receiving assistance with rental payments. This vital program empowers families to choose suitable housing options within the private market, offering flexibility and a broader range of choices.
