Salem Housing Authority's mission is to assist low- and moderate-income families to achieve self-sufficiency through stable housing, economic opportunity, community investment, and coordination with social service providers.

Established in 1969 under provisions of Oregon state law, Salem Housing Authority serves approximately 9,000 Salem area residents within Salem's Urban Growth Boundary with safe and affordable rental housing assistance.

Salem Housing Authority is committed to building a stronger community through public housing, housing choice vouchers, affordable housing, and supportive services. We serve families, individuals, people with disabilities, and senior citizens.
