The mission of the EBRPHA is to provide and develop quality affordable housing opportunities for individuals and families while promoting self-sufficiency and neighborhood revitalization.

 

The EBRPHA is an independent, autonomous agency. Its leadership and policy making are vested in a Board of Commissioners who are appointed by the Baton Rouge City-Parish and serve without pay for the good of the community.

The East Baton Rouge Housing Authority was established in 1941 to provide a decent home and suitable living environment for low-income families. The Housing Act of 1937 established a permanent public housing program. This program enabled public housing authorities to receive federal assistance to finance, develop, and manage low-income housing.

Since its inception, more than sixty years ago, the East Baton Rouge Housing Authority has provided housing and rental assistance to thousands of residents through its Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs. Today, the EBRPHA serves approximately 3,634 families.

Board of Commissioners

The housing authority is governed by a seven (7) member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Metro Council of the City of Baton Rouge. The Commissioners serve a five-year term and may be re-appointed by the Metro Council. The commissioners serve without compensation, but are entitled to reimbursement of expenses incurred during official Authority business. The day-to-day management of the Authority is vested in the CEO selected by the Board of Commissioners.

The Board of Commissioners meet the Second Thursday of each month, unless otherwise changed by the Board at a previous meeting.

The meetings are convened at EBRPHA’s Main Office located at 4731 North Boulevard, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70806.
