About Us

Kodiak Island Housing Authority was created by state statute in 1976 and is the tribally designated housing entity (TDHE) for nine tribes in the Kodiak region. A five-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Kodiak Area Native Association’s Board of Directors provides oversight and direction to KIHA’s Executive Director, who manages the day-to-day operations of the housing authority.

KIHA has been providing housing to Kodiak’s communities for over 40 years. Subsidized housing has changed a lot in that time but don’t worry! We have a wealth of experience and outstanding staff devoted to helping you find high-quality and affordable housing in Kodiak. Our mission is getting you the help you need. We are committed to building a community that we can all be proud to live in—one that is full of hard-working people who live in safe, beautiful, and affordable homes.

Mission

Kodiak Island Housing Authority’s mission is to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing while creating opportunities for resident self-sufficiency and economic independence.
