Board of Commissioners

The Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority operates under the jurisdiction of a five-member Board of Commissioners. Two board positions are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Cleveland; two board positions are appointed by the Cleveland City Council; and one position is appointed by the Mayor of the municipality with the second largest number of CMHA-managed housing units, currently East Cleveland. One of the Board members appointed by the Mayor of Cleveland must be a CMHA resident.


Through formal adoption of policy, they ensure that the Authority's purpose and accompanying responsibilities are carried out in as efficient and economical a manner as possible. In addition to setting policies governing operations and charting the direction of current and future programs, Commissioners ensure that the Authority operates within the law and according to HUD regulations. Among their principal responsibilities are providing leadership and advocating for public housing.


The Board meets monthly, and as needed, and is responsible for setting policy for the Housing Authority. There are five committees chaired by the Board:

  • Safety Management Committee

  • Personnel Committee

  • Resident Affairs Committee

  • Finance Committee

  • Audit Committee

  • Operations Committee
