Information about 

Jackson Metropolitan Housing Authority

Jackson Metropolitan Housing Authority was established on October 20, 1970.  Jackson MHA opened the Fairview Terrace apartments in 1982, with Bundy Heights to follow in 1985.  The Cambrian apartments in downtown Jackson were also opened in 1985.

The Section 8 Voucher Program was established in 1988, with a total of 25 vouchers.  More vouchers were issued in 1989(18), 1990(15), 1994(18), 2001(8), 2002(24).  We were also issued 50 non-elderly disabled vouchers each in 2001 and 2002, making a total of 208 vouchers. In 2018 JMHA was awarded 21 MS5 vouchers, and in November 2019 JMHA was awarded another 42 MS5 Vouchers.  The voucher total is now 270, but Congressional Funding only allows funding of around 235 of these vouchers.

The Jackson MHA office is located at the Fairview Terrace apartment site.  The JMHA staff consists of a great group of nine(9) employees.  Our Board of Commissioners consists of five (5) members.
