Founded in 1943, the Mercer County Housing Authority is a quasi-independent agency. As in the case of all housing authorities, the authority and direction is provided by a Board of five Commissioners, the Members of which are appointed by the Mercer County Commissioners.
Functioning under the authority of the Board of Commissioners is the Executive Director, Nannette Livadas, who is responsible for the daily operation of the Housing Authority.
MCHA operates housing for elderly, non-elderly disabled persons and for families that meet the low and moderate income criteria for the federal and state programs. The Authority provides these housing units through Federal multi-family housing, State housing programs and the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program whereby applicants can seek housing with private rental housing.
Our goal is to make our family developments a transitional, not a permanent, solution while supporting independent living for our senior and non-elderly disabled residents.
Mercer County Housing Authority is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people who need affordable, safe housing choices and supportive services in well maintained neighborhoods.
