History

The Geauga Metropolitan Housing Authority (GMHA) was created in 1969 by what was then known as the State of Ohio Board of Housing. Consequently, GMHA’s Charter was formed with subsequent powers being derived directly from the Ohio Revised Code. Even with the Charter completed, it wasn’t until 1981 that the agency received its first grant funding for 106 housing units from the U.S. Department of HUD. Over the years, GMHA has expanded to a total of 243 public housing units within Geauga County where it maintains 100% occupancy. Additionally, GMHA maintains an extensive waiting list of applicants.

GMHA also administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance program. Through this program, GMHA can assist up to 171 qualified low-income families with their rent and utility costs. Housing is obtained through privately owned properties. GMHA maintains a separarte waiting list of applicants seeking the Section 8 HCV program assistance.
