About Us

The Paso Robles Housing Authority (PRHA)  is a public entity founded out of the City of Paso Robles in 1942, operating under California Housing Authorities Laws, and regulated under California Health and Safety Code. The Housing Authority has owned and managed the 25-acre parcel located on the North end of Paso Robles known as The Oak Park Community since 1942. Oak Park originally consisted of 148 units constructed to serve the enlisted men, women, and families of Camp Roberts during WWII.
In 2012, the Housing Authority committed to disposition out of Public Housing and into an affordable housing project with plans to demolish the existing units over time (depending on available financing) and construct up to 302 units of new affordable family style apartment homes, which will be constructed in four phases.  The rents are targeted to qualified families making 30-60% of San Luis Obispo Counties area median income. 

To date, two phases of our redevelopment project are complete. The two  completed developments, Oak Park 1, and Oak Park 2,  offer a total of 150 beautiful new affordable family style apartment homes. We recently secured financing and will be beginning construction for phase three of our redevelopment project by the end of 2017.
Additionally, the Housing Authority sponsors on site children programs, including its own YouthWorks Program and ACORNS after school programs.
