Orlando Housing Authority

General Information

The Orlando Housing Authority (OHA) joined the MTW demonstration in January of 2011. Its goals include streamlining housing authority operations, removing or reducing rent disincentives to continued employment, improving recipient access to jobs and supportive services, providing increased low-income housing choices (including homeless/transitional housing and additional options for seniors), and taking every reasonable step to complete the greening of OHA.

OHA currently administers approximately 1,400 public housing units, 4,600 Housing Choice Voucher units, and 100 units of local, non-traditional housing.

MTW Status

OHA was selected as an MTW agency through a competition held in 2009 as a part of HUD's 2009 budget appropriation (Section 236, title II, division I) and its Standard MTW Agreement was executed on January 7, 2011, which ran through its Fiscal Year 2018. As a result of Congress passing the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, OHA’s MTW Agreement was modified and extended to the end of its Fiscal Year 2028.
