Housing Authority of the City of Prichard

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners and staff, welcome to the Housing Authority of the City of Prichard Website.

Established in 1940, our aim is to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing for low and moderate income families, including the elderly, handicapped and disabled.

Some of the services we provide:

  • Housing Choice Vouchers
  • Family Self Sufficiency
  • Supportive Services
  • Home Ownership Program
  • Housing Opportunities
  • Housing Counseling

HACP is privileged to serve our great community and strives to consistently provide high quality service. We currently assist over 3,000 families with a vast array of rental programs and homeownership opportunities. Annually, we provide over $14 million in housing assistance payments to many of these families through our High Performing Housing Choice Voucher Program.

HACP offers programs and services that extend beyond housing. From our Family Self-Sufficiency Programs to the William “Bill” Clark Family Life Center, our goal is to be a vital resource that meets a variety of needs.
