Letter From the Executive Director
The Board of Commissioners, Executive Director and staff welcome you to the website of the Housing Authority of Chester County (HACC). As you explore the site you will be pleased to find the wide array of housing options offered through our agency and its affiliated partners. Want to see what we look like? Interior and exterior photographs are provided for each of the public housing sites and those of our partnership properties. It is our intent to provide the best quality housing at an affordable price and to make eligibility for that housing fair and equitable to all.
The site contains direct information and various links that will hopefully answer the questions you may have about the availability of affordable properties in Chester County and how one can access that housing. You will find general information about the HACC along with specific guidance on how to apply for housing and the qualifications needed to become one of our clients through either Section 8 or the public housing program. If either of our waiting lists are open you will be able to apply through a link found at this web address. And the key components of both the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and the Public Housing Programs are explained in detail so that you can see the depth and scope of our operations at the agency.
Of course we understand that you may be visiting the HACC site for reasons other than obtaining housing. The latest news releases are included along with notification of important meetings including the monthly sessions of the Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. We have attached copies of key staff produced documents such as the HACC Five Year Plan and my latest report as Executive Director. We also have included links to federal and state policy publications that are pertinent to operations at HACC. If you have the need for social services related to affordable housing, the site can guide you to the Chester County agencies that can provide the help you may require.
Finally, we want to hear from you! The site is used as a tool to post documents that are presented for your comments. When we solicit your views we are truly sincere in wanting your input either pro or con. So when we ask, please tell us how you feel about proposed changes in the way we operate. Your opinion does matter and will be heard. Working together we can make affordable housing a reality for all citizens of Chester County.
Thank you and enjoy your visit!
