Canton Housing Authority

A Public Housing Agency

Mission Statement

Our goal is to ensure safe, decent, sanitary, and affordable housing; to create opportunities for residents, self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure integrity by all program participants.

Our Objective:

  • Recognize the residents as our ultimate customer
  • Improve PHA management and service delivery efforts through oversight, assistance, and selective intervention by highly skilled, diagnostic, and results-oriented field personnel
  • Seek problem-solving partnerships with PHA, resident, community, and government leadership
  • Act as an agent for change when performance is unacceptable and we judge that local leadership is not capable or committed to improvement
  • Efficiently apply limited HUD resources by using risk assessment techniques to focus our oversight efforts
