Who We Are

Our Mission: The mission of the Douglas County Housing Authority is to be a proactive, leading, and innovative affordable housing agency and advocate in assisting lower-income family, elderly, and disabled residents with their housing needs as clients are striving to achieve self-sufficiency or independent living.

Housing Program Options


The Douglas County Housing Authority is taking applications for a new housing program that will provide the participants an opportunity to become home owners.

Rental Housing Programs

The Rental Housing Programs offers housing options for disabled, elderly and families whose income and qualifications meet the HUD and Low Income Housing Tax Credit program guidelines.

Section 8

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program enables low-income persons/families to rent from a private landlord with rental assistance administered by DCHA.

Scholarship Opportunity

The Nebraska Chapter of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials provides scholarship opportunities to persons that are in college or will be enrolling in college. This is a competitive opportunity, and applications will be taken from persons in households currently receiving rental assistance through the Douglas County Housing Authority.
