Welcome to the Housing Authority of the City of Bessemer’s website. Our website is designed to provide you with information about the Housing Authority that will inform and assist you with your housing needs. The Housing Authority of the City of Bessemer has pursued and created varying and flexible partnerships and funding opportunities with agencies, organizations, City officials and other municipalities to develop additional, affordable housing for both rental and homeownership. Through these partnerships, we hope to realize our goal of improving the lives of our residents and the future of our community.
The Housing Authority of the City of Bessemer’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.
