Choctaw Housing Authority

The Choctaw Housing Authority provides five different services to the Tribal member: general maintenance, emergency maintenance, housing placement, resident services and the Drug Elimination Program. Although office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m., the best time to call for general maintenance is between 4 and 4:30 p.m. weekdays. If an emergency arises after working hours or on weekends, call the Choctaw Police Department (601-656-5711) and an on-call person will be paged. When applying for housing placement, it is important to note the eligibility requirements for each of the four programs (Mutual Help, Home, Rental and Elderly/Handicapped/Disabled) differ. It is best to fill out applications at the Housing Authority to determine which program each applicant is eligible for. After determination of eligibility, the applicant will be placed on a waiting list. Applicant is expected to notify the Housing Placement office of any changes in the information provided on his or her application. Resident Services include training on Housing and Urban Development services and the Choctaw Tribal Leasing and Ordinances services. Information on care and maintenance of the home or rental property, insurance, accounts receivable, counseling, money management and budgeting is also offered to interested persons.

Referral services through the Choctaw, Neshoba County and Mississippi agencies are important to the project and recipients. Cooperation is appreciated in achieving the goal of affordable housing in good condition for all eligible persons.
