The National Housing Authority (Aetolian: Εθνική Αρχή Στέγασης, romanized: Ethnikí Archí Stégasis) is a government agency in Aetolia responsible for the provision of sanitary and habitable dwellings for all residents of Aetolia. The Authority's main responsibilities include the construction of affordable houses. The Authority can also compulsorily acquire any land or buildings to be used for housing, as well as constructing roads, operating sawmills and joineries, and import building supplies duty-free.

It is also responsible for ensuring building standards are met, protecting tenants and holding residential rental bonds.

It was established by the First Convergence government in 1935 within the State Housing and Urban Development Act 1935.

The Authority is organised under the Department of Housing and is led by the Chief Housing Officer who reports directly to the Minister of Housing, currently Apostolos Levas.
