Information about us…
The Phillipsburg Housing Authority (PHA) is a public non-profit organization whose primary objective is to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing to low income individuals and families. The PHA operates in accordance with HUD regulations. It is the policy of the PHA to house persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, familial status, handicap, or national origin.
Besides providing quality housing the PHA provides assistance to individuals and families with low income to become self-sufficient through on-site services and programs in our community building. GED & ESL (English as a Second Language) classes, computer training, and NORWESCAP Head Start are just to name a few. Funding is available for job training, Firth Youth Center membership, and students who receive perfect attendance and/or honor roll. Residents can become involved with their community by joining our Resident Advisory Board.
