The Housing Authority of Glasgow exists to provide decent, affordable housing that is serviceable and economically efficient for eligible families and individuals and to promote the social well-being and economic independence of residents in an appropriate environment.
The Housing Authority of Glasgow was established in 1958, and over the years has grown to include not only our Public Housing units, but also the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program for Glasgow and Barren County.
