Application Information
Applications for conventional public housing may be filled out at our central office at 165 South French Broad Avenue, Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Once an application is completed for conventional public housing, applicants are placed on a waiting list according to the date and time of their application, the size of the unit for which they qualify (Public Housing only) and local preference for which they may qualify. There is an extensive waiting period to receive housing.

Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program (Section 8 )

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly Section 8 ) wait list is currently closed and HACA is not accepting applications.

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program (formerly Section 8 ) works to ensure that families live in quality housing. The HCV Program works strictly with landlords within the private rental market and it is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HCV Program assists HCV tenants with their rent and oversees participants through case management.
