Welcome to the Mexico Housing Authority’s Website

“Our mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all”

Many of our families, landlords and staff are concerned about the spread of the Coronavirus.  In order to keep you and staff healthy and safe, we encourage participants, applicants and landlords to conduct business electronically or via our secure drop box.

You can electronically send in information via email to our housing staff.  Staff emails are listed on the contacts page.   The MHA office has a secure drop box for participants and applicants to drop off information anytime.


We have a total of 203 Public Housing units in the style of duplex apartments with units of ADA compliance and a total of 151 Housing Choice Vouchers (formerly Section 8). These two programs are provided for low-income families through the funds of Housing and Urban Development. Please see below for the program that is right for you and select other tabs for more information on housing.  Mexico Housing DOES NOT offer any type of emergency housing programs.
