TBHRA is a joint agency that encompasses the Tioga County Housing Authority, the Bradford County Housing Authority and the Tioga County Redevelopment Authority. TBHRA serves an area of 2298 square miles over two counties, with a combined 947 authority owned rental units and 477 Section 8 Vouchers. Additionally, the Tioga Authority in cooperation with the Redevelopment Authority administers HUD Community Development Block Grants.
The Authorities have been created by a Board of Commissioners in each county. The Commissioners were authorized by the Commonwealth under the Pennsylvania Housing Authorities Law of 1937 (35 P.S. 1541) and Urban Redevelopment Law of 1945 (35 P.S. 1701). The Commissioners enacted resolutions pursuant to these laws declaring a need for each Authority locally and appointing a five-man board to govern its affairs. The dates the Authorities were formed are as follows:
Redevelopment Authority of the County of Tioga January 1963
Housing Authority of the County of Tioga April 1965
Bradford County Housing Authority September 1969

The Tioga/Bradford County Housing Authority was recently honored by the Pennsylvania Association of Housing and Redevelopment Agencies (PAHRA) at its annual conference in Valley Forge, PA.
“This is a tremendous honor for our Authority,” said Executive Director, Kelley Cevette. “There were a number of very impressive programs throughout the state that were nominated for this award. It’s very nice to be recognized for our efforts.”
The Tioga/Bradford County Housing Authority’s “Summer Kicks” exercise program was well-received by children and parents currently residing in the Authority’s family units.
“This program was such a great idea,” said Tawni Ledo of Blossburg, PA. “My daughter is usually very active in the summer but this helped her stay on track.”
