The Louisville Metro Housing Authority (LMHA) is seeking an Executive Director to lead the development and management of federally subsidized housing in the Louisville Metropolitan Area.
The mission of LMHA is to set a standard of operational excellence in providing quality, affordable, safe housing opportunities for residents to achieve self-sufficiency and an enhanced quality of life, and collaborating with community partners to build strong, viable neighborhoods. LMHA subsidizes 3,700+ housing units distributed throughout four family housing communities, five eldery/disabled housing communities, and several scattered site housing locations. The agency provides affordable housing to 4,000+ individuals with a wide variety of socioeconomic and health-related barriers to financial stability. In total, LMHA serves nearly 15,000 low-income individuals through its public housing, rental assistance voucher, and local non-traditional programs. Operations are primarily funded by annual Operating funds and Capital Improvement funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Every year, as a participant in the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program, the Louisville Metro Housing Authority creates and adopts an MTW Annual Plan to outline new and ongoing initiatives that utilize MTW authority.
The Executive Director oversees approximately 300 employees and reports monthly to a nine-member Board of Commissioners, which serves as the policy making body of the Louisville Metro Housing Authority.
