Welcome to HACA

Asheville Housing assists more than 6,500 Asheville/Buncombe residents and has recently completed the conversion of most of its public housing units to the Housing Choice Voucher program as project-based voucher units under the Rental Assistance Demonstration Program. Asheville Housing owns and/or operates 1,955 affordable housing units and administers over 1,600 tenant-based vouchers to assist families renting from other property owners. We are recognized by HUD as a High Performer.

We maintain one combined waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher program, which now includes both project-based (former public housing) and tenant-based vouchers. That waiting list is currently open. Based on current demand for vouchers, we expect that most applicants will receive a project-based voucher unit first, and will then have a priority opportunity to request a tenant-based voucher after one year in the project-based development.
