Our Mission

About Us

Established in 1938, the Housing Authority of the City of Orlando (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.



The OHA operates with three primary goals:


To assist low income individuals and families by providing “to rent” housing units in either the public or private housing markets through Section 8 and Public Housing;


To manage and maintain its housing and each community’s public space; and


OHA is committed to ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal access to OHA forms, notices, resources and services. OHA is currently updating the www.orl-oha.org website to improve its accessibility. In accordance with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), these changes will include design elements taking the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 into consideration.
