Enterprise Housing Authority

Enterprise Housing Authority

Enterprise Housing Authority (AL) was founded in 1959 under their mission statement:

To provide drug free, decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible families and to provide opportunities and promote self-sufficiency and economic independence for residents.

In order to achieve this mission we will: recognize residents as our ultimate customer; improve Housing Authority (HA) management and service delivery efforts through effective and efficient management of HA staff; seek problem solving partnerships with residents, community, and government leadership; apply HA resources to the effective and efficient management and operation of public housing programs, taking into account changes in Federal funding.

A Public Housing Authority is a governmental entity that is authorized by the State to engage in or assist in the development or operation of housing for low income and very low income families. The Housing Authority operates two basic programs - Public Housing and the Housing Choice Voucher program.

In the Public Housing program, the Housing Authority acts as the landlord. In the Housing Choice Voucher program, the Housing Authority administers the federal program by providing rental assistance on behalf of low and very low income families to private landlords.
