Housing Assistance CouncilFounded in 1971, the Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with headquarters in Washington, DC. Regional offices are in Georgia, Missouri, New Mexico, and California.
The only national housing and community development intermediary devoting all its resources to rural America, HAC is not a membership organization and works with all.
While working in every state and several territories, wherever rural need is found, HAC also has a special focus on the most underserved, highest need groups and regions, including Appalachia, the border colonias, the Mississippi Delta and Southeast, Indian country, and farmworker areas.
The Home Depot Foundation has very generously supported HAC's work with rural veterans. That work includes extensive data analysis and publication of a detailed report on rural veterans and their housing needs; loans and grants made to support affordable housing projects for such veterans; other grants vetted and recommended to the Foundation; training conferences in Iowa, Arizona and D.C.; a Capitol Hill symposium on rural veterans; other publications; and other work.
All of this activity is focused on developing, preserving, or repairing affordable homes for low- and moderate-income rural veterans, and on raising veterans' issues in the rural housing community. HAC is also focused on all affordable housing for veterans -- the homeless and near homeless, seniors, homeowners needing repairs, homeowners facing eviction, potential homeowners, and all kinds of renters.
