How to Apply for a MRHA6 Owned Apartment

Overview

The Mississippi Regional Housing Authority VI (MRHA6) owns a total of 136 Public Housing Units for Low income families. The Public Housing Units are located in 5 of the 9 counties we serve.  The goal of MRHA6 is to provide safe, decent and sanitary housing conditions for very low-income families and to manage resources efficiently.  The MRHA6 is to promote personal, economic and social upward mobility to provide families the opportunity to make the transition from subsidized to non-subsidized housing.

The Mississippi Regional Housing Authority VI receives its operating subsidy for the public housing program for the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  The subsidy is attached to the unit and not the family, which means that as long and the tenant is living in the unit and meet all of the guide lines for the program they will be assisted.  Then public housing properties are comprised of 3 bedroom single family houses and 3 bedroom apartments.

The properties are managed by the MRHA6 and all the daily operations of rent collection, management, maintenance and compliance.  Click Here for a listing of our properties. The MRHA6 housing portfolio has different operational requirements depending on the various sources of funds used to develop the property.
