B-1 Overview of Project

The Housing Authority of the City of St. Petersburg, Florida (also known as the St. Petersburg Housing Authority)

The St. Petersburg Housing Authority, Florida, was created pursuant to Chapter 421, Florida Statutes for the purpose of providing decent, safe and sanitary housing to low-income residents of the City of St. Petersburg. Currently, SPHA owns and manages a variety of low-income and affordable housing units and administers Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers along with supportive service programs for its residents. Together, these programs provide quality and sustainable housing opportunities for approximately 4,000 qualifying households.

A seven-person Board of Commissioners, authorized by the laws of the State of Florida, appointed by the Mayor, is responsible for the development of housing policy and the authorization of expenditures. SPHA's jurisdiction includes the City of St. Petersburg and extends in a ten-mile radius outside the City limits.

Founded in 1937, the St. Petersburg Housing Authority is one of the oldest housing authorities in the nation and is continually rated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a "High Performing" agency.

Michael Lundy serves as the agency's Chief Executive Officer and Secretary of the Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners.

Several years ago, SPHA embarked on a plan to reposition its Public Housing portfolio and expand affordable housing units throughout St. Petersburg.
