Lake Metropolitan Housing Authority

The mission of the Lake Metropolitan Housing Authority is to advocate for, develop and sustain affordable housing opportunities for the residents of Lake County.  We support and encourage residents to attain self-sufficiency while maintaining a customer-centered focus.

Lake Metropolitan Housing Authority (Lake MHA) administers housing assistance for approximately 1,700 families throughout Lake County. This consists of two federal housing programs, the Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly known as Section 8) and the Public Housing Program.

These programs offer low and moderate income households the opportunity to rent affordable, decent, and safe housing. More importantly, Lake MHA provides these households a stable living environment in order for our clients to work towards their own economic self-sufficiency.

Lake Metropolitan Housing Authority strives to maintain a high level of compliance while providing excellent customer service. We continually strive to educate the public about the agency, its contributions to Lake County and our mission to provide affordable, safe and sanitary housing. This also encompasses the county’s elderly and/or disabled population.

Lake MHA Administrative Offices are located at:

189 First Street
Painesville, OH 44077

This will mark the first time since 1973, that the Lake Metropolitan Housing Authority has expanded Public Housing and the first expansion outside the City of Painesville. There will be a total of 40 units in the City of Willoughby, which will include 6 ADA accessible units. Twenty-five of the units will be available for applicants currently on our Public Housing waiting list. The other 15 units will be available for lease to the general public at fair market rates.
