About HMHA

How We Got Started

Hancock Metropolitan Housing Authority (HMHA) was chartered in 1991 under the laws of the State of Ohio with the cooperation of the City of Findlay, the Hancock County Commissioners, the Hancock Regional Planning Commission, and local citizens.


What We Do

HMHA administers HUD’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and currently services Hancock, Wyandot, Putnam and Hardin Counties. The HCV Program provides rent subsidy assistance to eligible families. Families with a tenant-based voucher are able to choose from a variety of safe, affordable, privately-owned units.

Agency Plans

The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires HMHA to complete a 5-Year and an Annual Agency Plan pursuant to the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998. The Plan outlines the goals, objectives, and community activities that HMHA will undertake this year as well as through December 2023.

Financial Audits

All housing authorities administering the HCV Program are required to submit un-audited financial data to HUD electronically no later than two months following its fiscal year end. 

HMHA must also submit an audited financial report to the Auditor of the State of Ohio no later than nine months following its fiscal year end. The audit must be prepared by an Independent Public Accountant.
