Finance Department

Over the past year, Stark Metropolitan Housing Authority (SMHA) has improved several key areas in the Finance Department that positively impact SMHA employees, tenants, taxpayers, as well as business partners and landlords.

Contractors & Vendors

The Finance Department encourages all contractors and vendors to scan and email invoices to SMHA instead of using traditional mail. This expedites the delivery of goods and services and simplifies the billing process.


Please complete and return the ACH Authorization Form to the Finance Department if you’re interested in electronic payment processing (money drawn directly from an individual’s bank account) for rent payment.
