Welcome to the Monroe Housing Authority where we have been providing quality, affordable housing for over 75 years.   As one of the largest providers of housing in the City of Monroe, our agency offers over 3500 housing options that address the needs of families, retirees, and those with special needs.   The supportive services and amenities provided throughout the organization enables us to fulfill our mission to improve the quality of life of the people we serve. 

Monroe Housing Authority’s Board of Commissioners and Staff’s commitment to excellence has enabled us to be the recipient of HUD’s prestigious High Performer designation since origination of the award.  We will continue with that same spirit of excellence and high performance mode of operation as we prepare innovative approaches to the housing needs of the future. 

As Executive Director of the Monroe Housing Authority, I would like to personally invite you to see what Monroe Housing Authority has to offer as we implement HUD’s mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities that provide quality affordable homes for all.

Back to school safety tips!  For more information on back to school safety visit the National Safety Council at www.nsc.org

·         Look for a backpack with multiple compartments and padding to evenly distribute weight on your child’s back

·         Encourage your child to play on soft surfaces during recess

·         Educate your child on how to be a good passenger on a school bus – including clearing aisles and staying seated

·         When the school bus arrives, have your kids stand at least three giant steps (6 feet) away from the curb

·         Children should always walk on the sidewalk, if available; if not, have them walk facing traffic

All motorists also need to be aware of the sudden change in the number of children walking to and from the bus stop and school in the morning and afternoon with school back in session. Tips for motorist include:

·         Exercise extra caution as sun glare can be a factor during these times

·         Come to a complete stop at a safe distance from the bus when the red lights are flashing and the stop sign arm is extended - this indicates the bus is stopped and children are getting off the bus

·         Never pass a stopped school bus - it is illegal in all 50 states
