The mission of the Columbia Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher Program is to assist low income households leading efforts with local organizations to find more choices for decent, safe, and affordable housing opportunities (Rental and Home Ownership) in Boone County. The Columbia Housing Authority seeks to improve the quality of life, to insure fair housing, support the commitment, and to encourage affordable housing for persons of low and moderate income within the boundaries of Boone County.

With over 1,900 units of assisted housing, the Columbia Housing Authority (CHA) represents approximately 9% of Columbia’s rental market.

CHA’s two major housing assistance programs are subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
