About the Chattanooga Housing Authority


The Chattanooga Housing Authority (CHA) opened our doors in 1938 to provide public housing and urban development programs to residents in Chattanooga and Hamilton County.


Our organization has a seven-member Board of Commissioners.  Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor of Chattanooga and are appointed to five-year terms.  The Executive Director of the CHA serves as Secretary to the Board and is responsible for our agency.  


We employ approximately 140 employees.
