Owner/Landlord Opportunity for Housing Choice Voucher Program

JHA is pleased to offer owners an opportunity to present your unoccupied units at our tenant briefings.  Tenant briefings will be held twice a month.  All meetings will be held in building 207 Hightower Street, Jonesboro GA 30236.  Owners should RSVP five (5) business days before the briefing due to limited spacing, so please arrive on time.  Briefings will be held from 3:45 PM to 4:15 PM.  Briefing days will be posted on JHA's website under the HCV Landlord Portal.

Jonesboro Housing Authority is not granting that you will find a suitable tenant.  Tenants have the right to choose which landlord they would like to release their RTA moving packet to.  We will not give a reference for personal information on any tenant.  If you have any further questions, please contact Ms. Janet Wiggins at
