A Message from Jackie L. Newman

Chief Executive Officer


The Peoria Housing Authority is “moving families forward” and we are proud of the service that we provide to the affordable housing community within the City of Peoria and surrounding areas. The need for affordable housing continues to grow, and the PHA is working diligently through public and private partnerships in addressing this growing need. We are excited about our newest opportunity to start the redevelopment at Taft Homes beginning in 2021. The PHA will ensure updates and information is communicated through direct mail, PHA’s website and other visual and audio markets.

The PHA has missed seeing everyone in the PHA offices during the COVID-19 pandemic and we look forward to welcoming you back once it is safe to open our doors again. When you return, you will notice a visible difference in the appearance of our office space. Self-service kiosks have been added to our administrative and satellite offices to better serve our families and make your experience more efficient (please be patient with us as we transition and adjust) and sanitation stations have been added.

I have never lived through a pandemic and I have not been able to find a ‘how to’ book on living through a pandemic – but the fact of the matter is – we are learning day by day, week by week and month by month. Members of our Peoria Housing Authority staff are doing the best we can to minimize disruption to you, our families, as we continue to navigate this space in time. We are committed to assisting you and will continue to do our best to communicate with you through our newsletters, notices and website.

Again, welcome and enjoy navigating through our updated website!!!
