Hello, my name is Dana M. Vernon and I am proud to be the Executive Director of the Independence Housing Authority. I wish to welcome you to our website. This website is to assist you with information about federally funded subsidized and low income housing in the Independence community.
Independence Housing Authority is a public non-profit that primarily receives its funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Housing Authority of Independence is governed by a five member board who are appointed by the Mayor of the City of Independence. The Board sets policy for the agency and hires the Executive Director to oversee the day to day administration of the organization. The Housing Authority has a four member staff that consists of Executive Director, Administrative Assistant and two maintenance staff who are here to provide excellent customer service to our program participants and applicants. It is part of this staff that is bringing this user friendly website to you to assist you in your housing choices. We hope our website assists you with your housing needs in the Independence community.
