HACSA administers several different kinds of housing programs in Lane County for low-income families.
Public & Multi-Family Housing
HACSA offers clean, safe and affordable Public and Multi-Family housing units for low-income families, people with disabilities and the elderly. We own and manage one, two and three-bedroom units in Eugene, Springfield, Veneta and Florence. One-bedroom units are also available for elderly and disabled residents in Junction City, Creswell and Cottage Grove. Residents in these programs pay 30% of their adjusted household income for rent and utilities. Additionally, HACSA offers affordable housing units at Village Oaks and Firwood Apartments in Eugene. Residents in these programs pay a low flat rent. Full-time students can apply for both Village Oaks and Firwood Apartments.
Section 8 Rental Assistance
A Section 8 recipient can use a voucher to rent housing of his/her choice from a private landlord, as long as the rent amount is appropriate, the housing unit passes a Housing Quality Standard (HQS) inspection performed by HACSA. Recipients will pay approximately 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income for rent and utilities. With certain restrictions, HACSA will pay the landlord the approximate difference between the tenant contribution and the full rental cost.
Other Agency Owned Housing
HACSA owns, or is the general partner for, over 400 project-based subsidy and tax credit units throughout Lane County. As with Public Housing, these subsidies are tied to specific housing units and may not be used to rent housing of one's choice. Tenants pay their share of the rent directly to HACSA or to a HACSA-contracted Property Management firm.
HACSA has a number of development projects in various stages of planning.
