FOR YOUR INFORMATION
The Public Housing Program utilizes units which are owned and managed by the Housing Authority.  New leaseholders must pay a security deposit; at certain properties they are responsible for the payment of deposits required by utility companies, as well as monthly utility payments. Leaseholders may also opt to pay a flat rent which has been established for each property. Rent for families who choose to pay the flat rent is reviewed every three years. 
 
LHA has structured its management and maintenance teams to provide quality customer care and responsive service to its 1,000+ public housing leaseholders.  To efficiently accomplish this, they’ve divided the city into three regions and assigned a team to the properties within that area.  The three teams are:

Team I - Pimlico Management Office

Team II - Ballard-Griffith Towers Management Office

Team III - Satellite Management Office
