The Bessemer Housing Authority’s mission is to provide drug free, decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible families; to increase the supply of affordable rental housing for low-income families who cannot afford to pay market rents, and to provide educational opportunities and promote self-sufficiency and economic independence for all residents.
BHA has become aware of search engine ads, that appear when users search for “Section 8” on Google, that lead people to sites not related to Bessemer Housing Authority or any official Section 8 website. These sites ask for personal information and charge fees for what appears to be a Section 8 application. Bessemer Housing Authority has never, and will never, ask applicants to pay a fee in order to apply for housing.
