Public Housing Program

Public Housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly and persons with disabilities.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to WCHA for residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these units.

The Housing Authority of the County of Wake closed the Public Housing Wait List on April 30, 2023. 

Applications will not be accepted after April 30, 2023.

For more information, please call (919) 269-6404.

The Wake County Housing Authority does not have Emergency Housing.
