Tacoma Housing Authority (THA) offers two types of assistance:

  1. Affordable Housing Properties are developments that are owned and operated by the THA. The assistance with housing is connected to the specific unit that the tenant resides in and does not follow the household if they leave that unit. 
    More Information about our Affordable Housing Properties.

  2. Rental Assistance Program is a rental payment we make to a private landlord to assist with the cost of rent. This assistance is tied to the household and allows them to decide where they would like to live, as long as it is within our boundary and complies with program requirements.
