The Housing Authority of the City of Alexander City (ACHA) was chartered as a non-profit corporation in 1966 by the State of Alabama to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing to the low-income citizens of Alexander City. By contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as provided by the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, the Authority, a Public Housing Agency (PHA), is governed by a local 5 member Board of Commissioners. The Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and each serve a 5 year term. The Board elects a chairman and vice-chairman each year at the annual meeting.
In its pursuit of becoming Alexander City’s leading affordable housing provider, Alexander City Housing Authority seeks to engage the community at large on this critical mission. We are in the housing business, but our focus is on families. We help them with the most basic need in life – shelter – but we don’t stop there.

Vision: To serve as the leading provider of affordable housing dedicated to building stronger Alexander City communities.
Mission: Provide the necessary number of affordable, decent, safe, and sanitary dwelling units within its jurisdiction; to administer, professionally and accurately, the programs authorized by the Board of Commissioners and Congress; and to professionally maintain the property that has been developed throughout its intended useful life.
