Rice County Housing & Redevelopment Authority's Purpose

  • Provide a sufficient supply of adequate, safe and sanitary dwellings in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Rice County
  • To clear and redevelop blighted areas
  • To perform those duties according to comprehensive plans
  • To remedy the shortage of housing for low and moderate income residents
  • To redevelop blighted areas, in situations in which private enterprise would not act without government participation or subsidies


The HRA is governed by a five member Board, providing area-wide representation of the county. In addition, the Board includes a resident commissioner as a sixth member of the commission who may participate in decisions related to the administration, operation and management of the Federal public housing programs and Section 8 tenant-based rental assistance.
