Addressing the Needs of Families Every Day

PHA Sites



Mission Statement


The PHA’s Mission is to provide housing opportunities to Paterson residents eligible for Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and Public Housing that is decent, safe and affordable. PHA will also promote home ownership through the use of Section 8 Housing Vouchers.


We will work with other entities in the creation of mixed income finance developments to provide new or rehabilitated housing. Our goal is to empower residents, in concert with HUD’s program and initiatives and preserve and expand the supply of good quality housing units.
