Leased Housing

Leased Housing  

"Knowing this day would come kept me going. I always like working toward something. This money is going to make a big difference in our lives." 
Shanna Gonzales, 2011 Family Self-Sufficiency Graduate

HAC is the regional administrator for Section 8 vouchers, which provide financial assistance to low-income tenants. HAC manages over a third of the 2,000 Section 8 vouchers on the Cape and works closely with the town housing authorities that manage the other vouchers. Section 8 is an essential safety net, helping to provide safe, stable and decent housing for the elderly, disabled and other tenants who qualify for Section 8 assistance.

HAC’s Leased Housing Department pours millions back into local economy annually, helping about 1,200 households and 650 property owners each year. HAC provides rental assistance using federal and state subsidies for people throughout Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. This, in turn, allows property owners to pay their mortgages; and it allows our workforce to continue to live on Cape Cod.

The Family Self-Sufficiency program helps low-income families build assets and make progress toward moving away from public assistance. Participants get long-term counseling to help them build their employment skills and increase their financial literacy.
