WELCOMETO TAYLOR HOUSING AUTHORITY!
The Taylor Housing Authority (THA) was established to provide affordable housing for families within the Taylor community. THA receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Functions of HUD include, but are not limited to establishing policies and procedures, ensuring public housing agencies comply with the code of federal regulations, and provide funding through subsidies.
We have been in existence for over 62 years. The THA staff and commissioners have set the mission of providing programs and services that enhance the quality of the life for our residents. It is our desire to assist all residents to reach their full potential.
The THA is governed by a five member Board of Commissioners that is appointed by the presiding Mayor of Taylor. The THA administers a Public Housing Program and Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). Through these programs we assist approximately 250 families.
The Taylor Housing Authority is dedicated to providing our community with quality, affordable housing that provides a foundation for each family. We also strive to work in partnership with local nonprofits, the city and businesses to create programs and services that benefit not only our residents but also the Taylor community as a whole. Taylor Housing Authority is where housing excellence begins…
