The Housing Authority of the City of Jefferson provides affordable, safe and sanitary homes for families of all sizes and for the elderly and handicapped. The Authority also administers the Section 8 Housing Choice voucher program for the Jefferson City area.

We are accepting applications for all properties. Applications for housing may be picked up between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm Monday through Friday at the Housing Department in the lower level of the Housing Authority's Administration Office at 1040 Myrtle Avenue.   Completed applications
MUST submitted in person at the Housing Office. FAXED OR MAILED APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, ACKNOWLEDGED OR PROCESSED.  Applications are processed and added to the waiting lists in the order in which they are received. The waiting period for an apartment may range from two to three weeks to several months depending on the size of the applicant's family, the number of bedrooms required and accessibility needs.

When a unit becomes available we will send the applicant a packet containing additional information about the housing program and instructions for making an appointment for a leasing interview. Because we contact prospective tenants only by mail, it is vital that applicants keep the Housing Authority informed of their current address. Any correspondence returned to us as undeliverable by the Post Office will cause the applicant's name to be removed from the waiting list.

Our Mission Statement

To promote adequate and affordable housing, economic opportunity and a suitable living environment without discrimination for low-income, very low-income families, persons with disabilities or the elderly. 

The JCHA will be a vehicle of social mobility by giving qualified applicants the opportunity to reside in a subsidized public housing for a period of time, so that they may secure the necessary schooling or training they may need, which may consist of, but not limited to, obtaining a high school diploma or GED, college degree vocational training and/or marketable skills to obtain gainful employment.
