Opelika Housing Authority

Promoting Avenues of Opportunity

The Opelika Housing Authority is a nonprofit public corporation established in 1949. The OHA receives its authority from the state legislation and from contractual agreement with the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The Opelika Housing Authority began as 151 units in two different housing sites. The OHA is now composed of 634 units, located at 10 different sites, which includes Camp Hill, Alabama.

The Opelika Housing Authority administers 490 Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) Vouchers and 34 VASH Vouchers. While both multi-family housing and Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) programs fall under the purview of the Department of Housing and Urban Development and seek to address the housing needs of low-income individuals, the programs differ in how they operate.

The Opelika Housing Authority currently serves 2,250 Opelika and Camp Hill housing residents.
