Huntsville Housing Authority needs your help in 2023

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The Huntsville Housing Authority (HHA) hosted its annual State of the Authority Monday morning to share accomplishments over the past year and provide insight into the year ahead.

Authority Executive Director Antonio McGinnis spoke alongside Mayor Tommy Battle and other members of the HHA Board of Directors. A common theme they all spoke about was the need for community members to support HHA initiatives.

The Huntsville Housing Authority was established in 1941 to provide safe, affordable housing for low-income families. Currently, the organization houses more than 7,000 members of the Huntsville community in 3,000 units.

As the city grows, the need for affordable housing also increases. So going forward, McGinnis’ goal is to educate the rest of the community on what they can do to help HHA provide more housing for those in need.

“Our community needs to understand the need for more affordable housing, right now we don’t have enough,” McGinnis told News 19. “I think we can communicate with the public and educate them about the need for housing more affordable, then I think the community will do its part to help us build, renovate, remodel, whatever we need to do to get more people into beautiful, affordable housing.

McGinnis also told News 19 that their ultimate goal is to help people reach a point of self-sufficiency where they no longer need the Huntsville Housing Authority to help them find housing.
