Through our partnership with the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Development, (HUD), the Monroe Housing Authority
is in the process of renovating many of our projects to promote
energy efficiency thus decreasing utility costs to the residents;
and, lowering operating costs.
MHA employees and residents are actively participating in a variety of recycling and conservation programs.
The Monroe Housing Authority (MHA) is founded on the belief
that decent, safe, and affordable housing are central
to the physical and emotional health, the productivity, and
the self-esteem of the people it serves.
Recognizing its responsibility to maintain physical properties,
while affording dignity and respect to every individual, the
objective of the Monroe Housing Authority is to improve the
quality of life through a community partnership which promotes
decent and safe neighborhoods.
in 1942, MHA has set a standard of excellence which makes it a
model housing agency by national standards. It has consistently
been awarded a "High Performer" award by the Department
of Housing and Urban Development from the implementation of the
award in 1992 until present day.
