Montoya takes over a $100 million budget after a year of turmoil at the Jacksonville Housing Authority.

After months of controversy, the Jacksonville Housing Authority (JHA) announced that it has hired a new CFO and that the position will be filled by someone from outside the First Coast area.

Tyson Montoya was appointed JHA’s chief financial officer. The housing agency has been in turmoil for months. Montoya replaces Dennis LohrWho resigned from the position of financial director in May.

The Jacksonville Housing Authority has faced repeated criticism, including from the city’s Inspector General report in late 2023, which found that the agency engaged in wasteful spending and mismanagement of a municipal assistance program for residents.

Montoya will take over as chief financial officer on July 3 in Jacksonville. The housing board decided to hire Montoya after a nationwide search.

Montoya will resign as the company’s chief financial officer Utah Communications Authority. Montoya has extensive experience in the public services sector, according to a JHA news release issued Tuesday.

Prior to joining the Utah communications organization, Montoya spent five years with the organization Salt Lake City Housing Authority. Montoya is well versed in rental assistance and tax credit programs for low-income housing tenants.

“I am very excited to welcome Tyson to the JHA as he brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the position,” he said Vanessa Dunn, acting CEO and president of JHA. “I am confident he will be able to provide the stability and leadership the department needs.”

In his new position as JHA’s chief financial officer, Montoya will oversee an annual budget of more than $100 million.

“We look forward to Tyson’s contributions and leadership in his new role in helping JHA achieve its mission of providing high-quality, affordable housing to the Jacksonville community,” said JHA Chairman Heather Horowitz.
