WHO WE ARE The Columbia Housing Authority (CHA)
Founded in 1956, the Housing Authority of the City of Columbia, Missouri provides safe, healthy, and affordable housing to low-income families and individuals in Columbia and Boone County.
The Columbia Housing Authority is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of the City of Columbia. The five Commissioners serve staggered four-year terms.
WHAT WE DO We help financially struggling families to find affordable housing
CHA is dedicated to providing affordable rental housing to families who are struggling financially, for whatever reason. Our own properties are well-maintained and managed by trained and certified property managers. If you are looking in a different area of Columbia or Boone County, our team of Housing Choice Voucher Specialists will help qualified applicants with support for rent and utilities. CHA’s policies are based on Housing and Urban Development regulations and designed with input from a Resident Advisory Board and the public.
We help individuals from all areas of life, offering a full spectrum of housing options that fit their unique needs.
