Established in 1940, Tacoma Housing Authority provides high-quality, stable and sustainable housing and supportive services to people in need. It does this in ways that help them prosper and help our communities develop equitably.
THA develops and manages real estate and provides rental housing. In partnership with thousands of private landlords, it helps families pay the rent in the private rental market. It delivers supportive services to help families succeed as “tenants, parents, students, wage earners and builders of assets who can live without assistance.”
THA seeks to do its work in ways that help our community be an “attractive place to live, work, attend school, shop and play,” and that help Tacoma be “safe, vibrant, prosperous, attractive and just.”
THA owns and manages a varied portfolio of properties. They are multifamily properties, single-family homes, and properties we use for business purposes.
THA’s residential properties include over 1,300 dwelling units. They vary in their design, size, financing and levels of affordability. These properties are in nearly every Tacoma neighborhood. They include seven apartment buildings reserved for seniors and persons with disabilities, six developments for families, and the community of New Salishan.
