Organization of RHA

RHA has a five-person Board of Commissioners appointed by the Mayor of Reno with the concurrence of the Reno City Council. The Board of Commissioners appoints an Executive Director who administers the day-to-day operations of the organization.

RHA employs approximately 80 people with duties ranging from maintenance and inspections to administration of the various RHA programs and complexes.

Our Executive Director

The Board of Commissioners are responsible for setting policy and supervising the Executive Director. They are appointed by the Mayor of Reno and confirmed by the City Council to serve four-year terms. One of the five must be a tenant in an RHA program.
