How to Apply for Housing
The Housing Authority of the City of Austin website, www.hacanet.org, is the only website with information on how to apply for housing. Any other website that claims to accept applications or monies on behalf of the Housing Authority of the City of Austin is a fraudulent website. There is never a charge to apply for any program operated by the Housing Authority of the City of Austin.

- Housing Choice Voucher Applications are not being taken at this time.
The waiting list is currently closed. However, HACA plans to re-open the waiting list in late fall 2014.
When the waiting list re-opens, applications will be submitted through an online application process. Assistance for persons with disabilities and other special needs will be available. This process eliminates the requirement to stand in line for a paper application. The waiting list will remain open for at least 7 days to allow anyone interested in applying sufficient time to do so. After the waiting list closes, all complete and unduplicated applications received online will be entered into an online random lottery to determine which applications are ultimately placed on the waiting list and the order of placement.
Please visit this website for more details coming in the next few months.
