The Housing Authority became the Land Clearance Authority for Jefferson City. In the late 1960's and the 1970's the Land Clearance Authority documented and improved many blighted and substandard neighborhoods all over town.
Today the Housing Authority has 318 units of Public Housing and 421 units with other sources of funding. Families of all sizes, the elderly and disabled live in Housing Authority owned or managed apartments in several locations in Jefferson City. At least 200 more families rent from private landlords with rental assistance through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

The six members of the Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners are appointed by Jefferson City's mayor. The members of the Board are:
