The Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation was created in 1966 to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing within the Cherokee Nation.  Fifty years later, we continue that original mission and are dedicated to providing housing assistance through a number of programs.  Over 6,000 families throughout the Cherokee Nation jurisdiction are assisted with housing through the Housing Authority of the Cherokee Nation (HACN).  As a sub-recipient of NAHASDA funding for the Cherokee Nation, we administer low-income rental housing, rental assistance, college housing, housing rehabilitation, and manage a number of homes constructed with federal housing funds.

Today, the HACN has renewed its commitment to providing new construction opportunities to Cherokee families.  Through an innovative approach we offer a New Home Construction Program?.  This program uses funding outside of federal grant programs to provide housing.  Preference is given to families that own their own land or has a family member that is willing to donate land for construction.

HACN staff is available to assist with completing an application in our offices throughout the Cherokee Nation.  Staff may also be reached by phone at 918-456-5482, or toll free 800-837-2869.
