WelcomeWelcome to Brunswick Housing Authority! We have a mission here that drives everything we do, every day, for every person we serve. We are here to provide improved living conditions for low income families while maintaining their rent payments at an affordable level. We are a socially and financially sound Public Housing Agency that provides decent and sanitary housing, within a drug free and suitable living environment, for tenants and their families. We ensure compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all other applicable Federal laws and regulations so that the admissions and continued occupancy are conducted without regard to race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, handicap or familial status. Through our efforts, we strive to provide opportunities for upward mobility for all families and individuals who desire to achieve self-sufficiency. Learn more about our mission.
To Our Property Owners, HCV Participants and our Community
Currently, our country is experiencing a partial Federal Government shutdown. Brunswick Housing Authority receives 100% of its HCV funding from the Federal Government. Therefore, this government shut down may indeed affect our daily operation. The Board of Commissioners and the Brunswick Housing Authority Staff wants to assure you that we will continue to provide the best service possible for as long as we are financially able. Please note that once the shutdown is over, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will fund all housing agencies retroactively. At this time, we have been funded for January and have been told that we will be funded for February. If March funding is going to be affected, we will work diligently to communicate with our property owners as we receive information and make decisions.
At present, HUD staff members that support the BHA are furloughed and unavailable to communicate with us. However, the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) put out the attached statement. Unfortunately, this is beyond our control. If you would like to voice your concerns about the impact that this may have on you and your family, please consider contacting your elected representatives.
Public Housing residents and HCV participants whose income is from federal sources should notify BHA immediately if the delay in benefits is causing you to have problems paying your rent. We will work with you to the best of our ability within regulation.
To our property owners please refer to Part C of the Hap Contract that states specifically in paragraph 5.d. that “A PHA failure to pay the housing assistance payment to the owner is not a violation of the lease. The owner may not terminate for nonpayment of the PHA housing assistance payment.”
Thank you in advance for your patience.
HUD Funds Available for February, But Not For March
NAHRO has learned that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has enough money to ensure that February payments for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and the public housing Operating Fund will be made available to public housing authorities (PHAs). HUD intends to make those payments on time. NAHRO has also learned that there is not currently enough money to make HCV and Operating Fund payments for March, if the government shutdown continues until then.
The Brunswick Housing Authority has revised its annual Agency Plan for FY19. It is available for review at the Authority’s Central Office, located at 1126 Albany Street, between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday-Thursday.

Don McGlamory Educational ScholarshipThe Brunswick Housing Authority (BHA) established the Don McGlamory Educational Scholarship in 2008 for the benefit of all BHA Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) residents who are planning to attend an institution of higher education. The scholarship serves as a vehicle of hope to those individuals who have a desire to further their education but lack the adequate financial means to accomplish this goal. The Scholarship is designed to inspire these individuals to work toward becoming independent and economically self-sufficient members of the community. The scholarships are available on a competitive basis, and the award amount varies from year to year, depending on the availability of funds. All Don McGlamory Educational Scholarship Applications must be turned in by the Close-of-Business April 30, 2018. You can download the Don McGlamory Scholarship Application below.
