About Us

The North Little Rock Housing Authority (NLRHA) has served as an affordable housing provider for more than 70 years. Our goal is to provide low-income families with safe, decent, and sanitary housing in an environment that would enable them to build self-sufficiency and pride. Today NLRHA provides housing to over 1,000 families in traditional public housing and more than 1,300 under the Section 8 (Housing Choice Voucher) Programs. NLRHA programs include:

  • Traditional Low-Rent Housing
  • Section 8 Voucher Program
  • Section 8 Homeownership Program
  • Section 8 and Public Housing Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Programs
The NLRHA, established in 1939, is a public body authorized by the United States Housing Act of 1939. The Authority is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and operated in accordance with HUD’s regulations and guidelines.

A 5-member Board of Commissioners, nominated by the Board and approved by the Mayor for 5-year terms, governs the Authority. The Board also includes a “Resident Commissioner.”
