Who We Are

Our Communities

Places to call Home.

The KCHA is the largest owner of rental housing in Knox County, providing homes to over 1,300 people.  We currently have 418 units in our public housing portfolio - 228 single, elderly, and disabled units, and 190 units of family housing.

The agency also oversees 220 Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8) that allow low-income families to rent from private landlords throughout the jurisdiction.

The population we serve is as diverse as the community we live in.  Our clients represent a broad range of cultures, backgrounds, and stages in life, from hard working individuals and families to persons with disabilities and special needs to single parents seeking to improve the quality of life for their families.

Each year, the combination of low wages,  unemployment, rising housing costs, and generational poverty affects thousands in Knox County.  We are here to help.

The Knox County Housing Authority is a dynamic force in our community, providing high-quality affordable housing opportunities for individuals and families, while promoting self-sufficiency, empowerment, and a sense of community development.

Further, we will partner with other agencies to implement programs and services designed to help our families thrive. 

Building Community, People, and Partnerships.

We are the Knox County Housing Authority. This is what we do.
