A Message From The CEO

I am proud of the winning team we have created here at the Housing Authority of Columbus, Georgia (HACG). This is a team comprised of dedicated HACG employees that do more than provide housing for low-income families. It is a team that diligently works with a variety of community partners every day to offer life-changing programs to our residents. We know that by employing passionate people, managing and maintaining quality properties and working with a diverse group of partners we have created a winning combination for our residents. And we have the scores to prove it.

HACG has an occupancy rate of 99% and received a score of 98% on our latest evaluation by The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Our Housing Choice Voucher program is a win-win combination for participating property owners. They benefit by having a steady source of income while providing much needed affordable housing for our community’s residents. Over 3,400 families benefit from this program with almost $16 million in housing assistance payments made on their behalf. In recent surveys, more than 95% of landlords participating in this winning program are pleased with the HACG administration of the Voucher Program.

Much of HACG’s success can be directly attributed to the innovative thinking and hard work of our 130 employees. We care deeply about our employees and offer an excellent work environment with great benefits. We are proud to report that the latest employee satisfaction survey indicated 100% of HACG employees were satisfied with their employment and 95% planned to retire from our organization.

When we all work together to give residents the tools they need to become self-sufficient — the entire community wins.
