The Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) helps people access affordable housing through collaborative partnerships to develop, renovate, and maintain housing, promote neighborhood revitalization, and assist residents in accessing needed social services. The vision of CMHA is to serve as a national leader in opening doors to innovative housing for diverse communities, empowering residents, and improving neighborhoods. We endeavor to serve the Columbus community with commitment, integrity, and confidence to meet the challenges of change with a spirit of revitalization in all areas of our work. In keeping with our mission and commitment to the community, CMHA works to provide opportunities for public housing residents. This is consistent with our requirements to comply with Section 3 of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Act of 1968, as amended, 12 U.S.C. 1701u. Section 3 requires recipients of certain HUD funds to make economic opportunities, to the greatest extent feasible, available for low- to very low-income persons.
