St. Petersburg Housing Authority Main Office

The St. Petersburg Housing Authority (SPHA) was founded in 1937. We are the leading affordable housing provider in St. Petersburg.

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.
