St. Petersburg Housing Authority Main Office

Founded in 1937, the St. Petersburg Housing Authority (SPHA) 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.

Our Mission

It is the mission of the St. Petersburg Housing Authority (SPHA) to provide safe, sanitary, accessible, decent, and affordable housing to eligible citizens of the city of St. Petersburg, while enhancing and promoting resident self-sufficiency.

To achieve that mission, SPHA operates three housing programs, Public Housing, Affordable Housing, and Housing Choice Vouchers (commonly known as Section 8). Together, these programs provide quality and sustainable housing opportunities for approximately 4,000 qualifying low-income households.
