Public Housing Rental Assistance
Public Housing provides assistance for low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. In El Paso, this program includes a variety of housing sites, including multi-family developments, high-rise towers and scattered site homes. HACEP’s low-income public housing program includes 46 family developments that consist of one-to-six bedroom apartments and four high-rise towers totaling over 6,000 units. To 18,300 El Pasoans, these are their homes. They are sprinkled across the city and accommodate a wide range of family sizes from studio units to six bedroom apartments.
HACEP is committed to develop housing for persons with special needs. Under the low-income public housing program, all developments were designed to accommodate persons with disabilities. HACEP also has a very active scattered site rental program that consists of 260 single-family and duplex homes scattered throughout El Paso.
Applications for the HCV Program must be submitted through HACEP’s online pre-application system.
