Housing Authority

The Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation was created in 1966 to provide safe, quality housing for citizens of the Cherokee Nation and their families.  Today, HACN continues that original mission and provides housing assistance to our citizens and other Natives through a number of programs.

HACN offers low-income rental housing, rental assistance, college housing, and housing rehabilitation, as well as offering an innovative new home construction program that allows Cherokee families to more easily achieve their goal of home ownership. HACN uses both federal and tribal funding to provide its services.

After the reestablishment of the Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation in 2012, the tribe began building new homes for its citizens through the HACN’s New Home Construction Program. Since the completion of the first homes in August 2012, the program has built about 700 new homes for Cherokee families.
