Tacoma Housing Authority

The Tacoma Housing Authority (THA) offers two types of assistance for families in need of housing support: 1) Affordable housing properties, which are owned and operated by THA; and 2) a Rental Assistance Program which helps tenants pay rent to a landlord in non-THA owned housing. There is a wait list for both programs, so it’s recommended to check the THA website for eligibility and wait list status and sign up to get alerts with updates.
