About West Point Housing Authority

The Housing Authority of the City of West Point, casually referred to as West Point Housing Authority (WPHA), was chartered as a non-profit corporation in 1950 by the State of Mississippi to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing to the low-income citizens of West Point. By contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and as provided by the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, the Authority, a Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA)/Multi-family Housing agency, is governed by a local 5-member Board of Commissioners. The Commissioners are appointed by the city's Mayor and Selectmen, with each serving a 5-year term.

WPHA currently owns and manages 166 housing units units within the city of West Point, ranging from Studio to 4-bedrooms. 14 of our units are equipped for persons with physical disablities (6 of which are designated as audio/visual [A/V] units for those requiring such assistance).  

Our funding comes from HUD, monthly collected rent, and investments. WPHA currently has 6 full-time employees and 1 part-time. 

Since the inception of an inspection and scoring system that HUD began in 1996, WPHA has maintained the top designation of "High Performer".  This status enables WPHA to capitalize on certain bonuses awarded by HUD which benefit our residents.
