Welcome To Canton Housing Authority

Thank you for visiting the Canton Housing Authority website. CHA is a federally funded agency and operates independently from the City of Canton.

Our goal is to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for low-income families. Canton Housing Authority (CHA) owns and operates 145 public housing units located at three sites: Jefferson Circle, Shipp Street and Oakside Drive. We offer One, Two, Three and Four Bedroom units for rent throughout each development. Each home features thoughtful design and recent upgrades to make your home your own personal retreat. All units feature a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer connections, and private patio or balcony. All of our housing developments are in close proximity to employment centers, religious and educational institutions, local bus transportation, and recreational and cultural amenities.

CHA only offers Public Housing and doesn’t administer the Housing Voucher Program. If you have a voucher and would like to port to Canton, Georgia please call the Department of Community Affairs at 404-679-4915 or visit their main website at http://www.dca.state.ga.us

COVID-19 TIPS

Take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick. If you need assistance with the purchase of any supplies or precaution measures to assist with your family please contact Mrs. Loberg at jloberg@cantonha.org or 770-479-4969 ex. 125

If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is extra important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease.

• Stock up on supplies.
• Take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others.
• When you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact and wash your hands often.
• Avoid crowds as much as possible.
• Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
• During a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed.
Have supplies on hand
• Contact your healthcare provider to ask about obtaining extra necessary medications to have on hand in case there is an outbreak of COVID-19 in your community and you need to stay home for a prolonged period of time.
• If you cannot get extra medications, consider using mail-order for medications.
• Be sure you have over-the-counter medicines and medical supplies (tissues, etc.) to treat fever and other symptoms. Most people will be able to recover from COVID-19 at home.
• Have enough household items and groceries on hand so that you will be prepared to stay at home for a period of time.
Take everyday precautions
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Take everyday preventive actions:
• Clean your hands often
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
• If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
• To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. Use a tissue or your sleeve to cover your hand or finger if you must touch something.
• Wash your hands after touching surfaces in public places.
• Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
• Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks & cell phones)
• Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces. Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like COVID-19 may increase in crowded, closed-in settings with little air circulation if there are people in the crowd who are sick.
• Avoid all non-essential travel including plane trips, and especially avoid embarking on cruise ships.
