Housing & Redevelopment Authority

The HRA is governed by a five-member board, providing area-wide representation of the county. In addition, the board includes a resident commissioner as a sixth member of the commission who may participate in decisions related to the administration, operation and management of the federal public housing programs and Section 8 tenant-based rental assistance.

The HRA may

  • Provide a sufficient supply of adequate, safe and sanitary dwellings in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of Rice County's residents
  • Clear and redevelop blighted areas
  • Perform those duties according to approved comprehensive plans
  • Remedy a shortage of housing for low- and moderate-income residents
  • Redevelop blighted areas, in situations in which private enterprise would not act without government participation or subsidies.
