General Information


The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso was established in 1938 to provide low-income residents of the City of El Paso with access to low-cost housing. We develop, acquire, lease and operate affordable housing for the residents of El Paso with limited income. Over the years the need for housing in El Paso has increased. Currently, the Authority provides 6,044 public housing units in 8 Asset Managment Project sites, 538 units in New Construction, 496 tax credit units, 438 non-subsidized units and 5,322 Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (rental assistance to private owners). Although we are funded primarily by the federal government, we operate in many respects as a private management company. We employ industry best practices.

 

The Authority is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of the City of El Paso. One member represents the residents of the Housing Authority. The Housing Authority Chief Executive Officer reports to the Board of Commissioners. The Authority has a budgeted staff of 450 in 10 major divisions. The operations of the Housing Authority is headed by the Chief Operating Officer who provides oversight to the Office of Public Housing, the Office of Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and the Office of Development and Capital Funds Programs. The administrative division is headed by the Chief Financial Officer who provides oversight to the Office Information Technology, the Office of Procurement and Contract Compliance, the Office of Budget and Grants Compliance and the Office of Accounting and Finance. The Office of the Chief Executive Officer manages all daily operations of the Housing Authority including the administrative offices of the Chief Operating Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the Legal Department, Human Resources and the Public Information Officer.
