A Message from the Executive Director
Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. I am Tammy Emerson, Executive Director of the Housing Authority of the City of Victoria, also known as the Victoria Housing Authority. We are a medium public housing agency with both Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) programs. We have 321 public housing units consisting of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments and also have 359 Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8).
Our website will provide you with some basic information on our programs and eligibility requirements. Not to mention find tips on how to apply, maintenance and how to contact us.
Victoria Housing Authority has been around since 1950. The City of Victoria is a small town with a big city feel and is conveniently located within 2 hours of major cities such as San Antonio, Houston and Austin, the capital of Texas.
The mission of the Victoria Housing Authority is to enhance the Victoria community by creating and sustaining decent, safe, and affordable living environments for lower-income families, elderly and persons with disabilities; and to foster stability and self-sufficiency and a sense of community and pride in neighborhoods where they reside. We are committed to fostering an environment that meets these goals.
Tammy Emerson, Executive Director
