Missoula Housing Authority
Welcome to the Missoula Housing Authority! This page is for current participants of our subsidized housing programs. If you are a current tenant of Missoula Housing Authority, please visit our Current Residents page. If you are a participant and have a landlord who is interested in working with us, please have the landlord visit our Landlords page. If you’re interested in applying for one of our subsidized housing programs, please visit our How to Apply page.
The Missoula Housing Authority manages the following subsidized housing programs:
Housing Choice Voucher

Most information you need to know about being a participant of Missoula Housing Authority is in your Family Handbook, which was given to you when you were issued your voucher:
Family Handbook: Housing Choice Voucher
Family Handbook: Shelter Plus Care
Family Handbook: Project Based Voucher
In addition to your Family Handbook, you are required to follow the terms of the lease agreement (given to you by your landlord) and if you live in one of MHA's properties, you'll be given a Tenant Handbook as well.
As a participant in one of our rental assistance programs, you are required to follow Family Obligations to maintain your housing assistance. Your Family Obligations can be found in your Family Handbook and are also available here for you to download:
Family Obligations & Grounds for Termination: Housing Choice Voucher
Family Obligations & Grounds for Termination: Shelter Plus Care
Family Obligations & Grounds for Termination: Project Based Voucher
The Missoula Housing Authority (MHA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) require participants be re-certified at least once per year. At this Annual Recertification, you will be asked to update all income and expense information (providing the relevant documentation) as well as provide information on any changes to your household. The Annual Recertification packet will be mailed to you. If you lose your packet, you can download copies of the Annual Recertification paperwork here:
Annual Recertification Packet: What to Submit for Eligibility (pink form)
Annual Recertification Packet: Personal Declaration (blue form)
Annual Recertification Packet: Authorization for Release of Information
Annual Recertification Packet: Out of Pocket Medical Expenses

If you need to report an income or household composition change to MHA between Annual Recertifications, please complete a Notice of Change form (green form) and submit it to your Program Specialist.
If you disagree with a determination made by Missoula Housing Authority and think we did not follow policies or HUD regulations, you may ask for an Informal Hearing. You must make such a request to the MHA office in writing within 10 business days of the determination date. For more information about this process, please review the Informal Hearing Process. If you’re a Public Housing tenant, please review the Public Housing Grievance Policy for more information on this process.
