Who We Are in Your Community
Salem Housing Authority is Low-Income Public Housing that has a strong relationship with local, state and federal government. However, we are actually an independent owned agency. Charted under state law we are an autonomous, not-for-profit public corporation. The organizational structure allows Housing Authorities to work in conjunction with local governments and agencies to develop long-term housing strategies for communities. Though independently run, Housing Authorities are required to follow federal regulations. Salem Housing has 90 Public Housing Apartments which are subsidized by HUD through Capital Funding Grants and Operating Subsidy. Also, Salem Housing Authority owns and operates a multi-family program called Bright Meadows that has 60 apartments. This program is funded by HUD through MHDC by the Section 8 Project Based Program and receives a monthly voucher.
