The Housing Authority of the City of Rome, New York was organized on or about 1948 to address the needs of housing for low to moderate income families. Governed by five commissioners appointed by the Mayor, and two Tenant Commissioners that are voted in by a group of their peers, they oversee an Executive Director and staff that carry out the daily duties and responsibilities of the Authority.
Their mission is to provide decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing to low and moderate income citizens of the City of Rome. The employees of the Authority provide the day-to-day operational support for 385 public housing households located throughout the City and over 632 Housing Choice Voucher Program participants living in private accommodations.
The Authority's staff performs admissions, maintenance, property management, administrative, and resident service duties.
