About us

Created in 1975 by Resolution of the Travis County Commissioner’s Court, and governed under the guise of Chapter 392 of the Texas Local Government Code, the Housing Authority of Travis County (HATC) provides safe, decent, and sanitary housing for low-income families in Travis County.

What we do

At the Housing Authority of Travis County (HATC), our primary goal is to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income families in our community. We achieve this by administering a range of programs and services designed to support families in their pursuit of stable housing and self-sufficiency.

One of our key initiatives is the management and maintenance of HUD Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) units, as well as affordable family and senior developments (non-PBRA). These units offer eligible families access to quality housing options that are within their financial means, thereby promoting stability and well-being. In addition to working closely with property owners and landlords, we ensure that each housing unit meets strict quality standards, providing residents with a comfortable and secure living environment.

Another critical aspect of our mission is the issuance of Housing Choice Vouchers. This program offers qualifying families the flexibility to choose rental units in the private market while receiving financial assistance from HATC. By collaborating with property owners and addressing potential barriers to housing access, we help facilitate a smooth transition for voucher holders into their new homes.

Beyond simply providing housing options, HATC is committed to empowering our clients through various supportive services. We work in partnership with other community organizations to offer job training, educational programs, and access to essential resources. By fostering self-sufficiency among our residents, we contribute to building stronger communities and enhancing the overall quality of life for those we serve.
