Dear Friends and Supporters of Nampa Housing Authority:

I would like to welcome you to our website and thank you for your interest in our organization. Nampa Housing Authority (NHA) has been in existence since May 25, 1951, the same
year The
State of Idaho incorporated Housing Authorities through Title 50-1905 of the State Code.

At NHA we understand the challenges facing many people within our community who are working, in a training program, elderly and/or disabled. We are committed to helping those families so they too can share the American Dream of self-sufficiency and homeownership.

The Board of Commissioners and Staff of NHA are committed to providing our residents with high standards of professionalism, both in the housing we provide and the customer service we deliver. Our motto is, "Creating Caring Communities," which encompasses our passion to provide quality housing, and I wholeheartedly believe this to be the very core of our work.

In April 2003 I was entrusted with leading NHA in a direction that would best suit our residents. I took the challenge knowing full well this would not be an easy task. The organization was on the brink of becoming a "Troubled Housing Authority" - a title we did not want. Through the hard work and dedication of the Board of Commissioners and Staff at NHA we have been a "High Performing Housing Authority," since 2004, a title we wear with pride!

If I can provide you with additional information about NHA, please contact me at:

                                                                 ReThink Housing, Why Housing Matters

   Having a place to live is a basic need for everyone.  Yet, for some people it remains out of reach.  Public housing serves approximately 2.2 million people across the U.S., but the need is much greater; more than half a million people are on waiting lists.  According to the ReThink Survey:  Perceptions of Public Housing 2013, the overwhelming majority of Americans surveyed do not support public housing in their neighborhoods and would not want to live near a public housing unit.  Learn more at:
