Over the last few years, the agency has taken strides to change the often-negative perceptions associated with living in public housing. While it is an unfortunate reality, much of the housing development of the past created an institutional façade for most public housing projects, where chain-linked fencing, and closed-spaces are commonplace. The Authority has utilized Construction Through Environmental Design Principles (CPTED) throughout the properties to create livable, open spaces to create a community feel to properties and reduce crime in the area.
The agency is committed to data-driven decision-making across the Authority to ensure that our programs and services are efficient, economically viable, and sustainable. We value our employees and encourage their professional development to ensure that the Authority has experienced, and dedicated professionals across the agency. Our talented team helps to address critical policy issues of today, but also possess the knowledge, and education to adapt to the industry challenges of the future.
