The Hammond Housing Authority (HHA) provides homes for low-income families and individuals. Those
who meet income requirements are selected in accordance with the Hammond Housing Authority Occupancy Policy. There is
no discrimination against people of any race, sex, color, or religion, and rent is partially subsidized by the federal government.
The HHA office
and staff operates under the guidance of the Executive Director. Our properties are handicapped accessible, have hearing-impaired
smoke detectors as well as many other accomodations. The office is open for business 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday
HHA offers two types of housing - Public Housing and Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV). We operate 282 public
housing units in the City of Hammond. Through the Section 8 HCV Program, residents receive rental assistance to
help rent apartments owned by private landlords. (Click on the links above to learn more about housing opportunities.)
The HHA has a Family
Self-Sufficiency Program in place, which focuses on the unemployed and underemployed members of the community who participate
in our Section 8 HCV Program. Rental assistance programs are coupled with career and personal counseling, job training
and placement, child care, transportation, adult basic education, and literacy training. HHA has 101 family self-sufficiency
slots. If you are interested and are a Section 8 HCV participant, please call the HCV FSS Coordinator, Barb Stanley,
at (219) 989-3265.
All housing authorities are required
to submit both a Five-Year and an Annual Plan. The Five-Year Plan describes our mission and the long-term plan for achieving
that mission. The Annual Plan provides details about our programs and the way we serve our residents. You may
come to our main administration office during office hours to see a copy of our current Agency Plan.
