About Us

The Cullman Housing Authority is a public housing authority chartered under the laws of the State of Alabama in 1949. The Authority is governmental in nature, but is not a part of the general city, county or state government. CHA uses no local tax revenue in its operation, but derives the majority of its revenue from rents and Federal Subsidies.

Historically, the Authority is best known for administration of traditional housing programs including the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) programs.

Responsible for a budget in excess of $2 million, the Authority operates in a professional and ethical fashion to ensure the success of its programs. Funding sources are solely from rental income and subsidies from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

However, it takes more than bricks and mortar or funding to help people make a home. Cullman Housing Authority unites housing, people, and services to assist residents in building their neighborhoods and communities. CHA has again been designated a HUD “High Performer”. Earning this title confirms our commitment to serving as responsible stewards of public resources while providing decent, safe and affordable housing to those in need.

Service Area
