The Housing Authority shall service the housing and social needs of lower income, elderly, handicapped, and family households living and working in its jurisdiction.

Rental assistance shall be provided to those otherwise qualified and selected families on public housing owned, tenant-lease-purchase housing, or leased housing that shall be decent, safe, and sanitary.
In conjunction with HUDs Smoke-Free Final Rule, all properties owned and managed by the Housing Authority will be subject to a new Smoke-Free Housing Policy, effective July 1, 2018. Under this new policy,Tenants and their guests are only permitted to smoke in designated smoking areas, which are at least 25 feet from the buildings. There is no smoking permitted inside the buildings, or in areas that are non designated areas. The designated areas are clearly marked with signs. The law does not permit grandfathering in of current Tenants, and therefore all Tenants will be required to sign a Smoke-Free Housing Lease Addendum which sets forth the details of the Smoke-Free Policy. The purpose of the policy is to create a safer and healthier environment.
