Welcome to the New Albany Housing Authority

The New Albany Housing Authority (NAHA) was established in March of 1937 and began providing affordable housing to the residents of New Albany in 1938.  Since the 1930's the New Albany Housing Authority has evolved to become much more in the lives of its residents than a provider of a roof and four walls. The Housing Authority provides opportunity for self-improvement and personal growth for young families, senior citizens and those eager to improve their career and life prospects.

Residents of the New Albany Housing Authority have access to:

  • General Education Development (GED) training programs
  • Home Ownership Program for Residents
  • Family Self-Sufficiency Program Assistance
  • Computer Lab Access
  • Access to more than 40 Community Service Providers who provide services in partnership with NAHA
  • Transportation Programs for Senior Residents to deliver Seniors to medical appointments, grocery, etc.

The New Albany Housing Authority's Value Statement:

  • More than $66,000.00 in funds paid to the City of New Albany and New Albany - Floyd County School Corporation in lieu of taxes
  • $0 - The Amount of Local, County and State Funds needed to operate the New Albany Housing Authority
  • $3,000,000 -  The amount of funds secured by the New Albany Housing Authority for Social Service grants since 1999.
  • High Performer Status from Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for Public Housing and Section 8 Program Management

Life can be a struggle for almost all of us with the economic conditions and the decline of the extended family support structure. The New Albany Housing Authority is extending educational training, life skills training and family support resources to residents in need.

Riverview Tower Tenant Update

After further evaluation and testing of the electrical equipment that supports the air conditioning system for the apartments, we found that it will not be able to be temporarily repaired.

We will be installing portable air conditioning units in each apartment on or before Wednesday, August 1st.  This is in addition to the box fans that were delivered yesterday.  As I stated at the meeting this morning, if you’re in need of a special accommodation, please call Sue Barks at 502-442-4254.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that has been caused and please know that we are committed to solving this problem as soon as possible.

NAHA Management

To All Residents of Riverview Tower 

On 7/24/2018, a fire damaged the electrical system in the building. The fire was caused by a plumbing leak, which shorted out the wiring that feeds each of your air conditioning units. Our current contractor feels that due to the age of the building and the electrical system, it may take up to four weeks to locate (or possibly make) the parts and complete the repairs. We are checking with other sources and hope to get a second or third assessment that may help us to resolve the situation sooner.

In the meantime, NAHA is in the process of purchasing box fans for each unit and will have you those to you as soon as possible. The A/C is still working on the first floor so please take advantage of that if needed.

Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience. Please know that this is our top priority and that we are working diligently to find the quickest solution. We will keep you updated as we know more.
