CMHA Offices, Boardroom (or watch on Zoom)

Established in 1933 as the first chartered public housing authority in the country, the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) owns and manages property and administers rent subsidy programs to provide eligible low-income individuals and families quality, safe, affordable housing in Cuyahoga County.

CMHA has a five-member Board of Commissioners that meets monthly, and as needed, to review and set policy for CMHA. Two board positions are appointed by the mayor of the City of Cleveland; two board positions are appointed by the Cleveland City Council; and one position is appointed by the mayor of the municipality with the second largest number of CMHA-managed housing units, currently East Cleveland. One of the Board members appointed by the mayor of Cleveland must be a CMHA resident.

Board members:

  • Stephanie Pope-Earley, chair
  • Joseph Black, vice chair
  • Nadine D. Head
  • Robert E. Davis
  • Diane Howard

Note: You can attend CMHA board meetings in person in the boardroom at CMHA’s offices, located at 8120 Kinsman Road in Cleveland. You can also attend remotely by joining a Zoom link. We do not know when a recording of the Zoom meeting would be available, as CMHA distributes it only via a public record request. So, to document the meeting, please attend at the time of the meeting. It could be helpful to record audio of the meeting with your phone or a recording device, but it is not a requirement of the assignment.
