The Housing Development Alliance owns and maintains 20 rental units. These units are designed to provide accessible, high quality, affordable housing for low-income individuals and families. Our goal is for a person or family to own an affordable home, but in some cases, renting is a better option. For some, the costs associated with owning and maintaining a home are just not feasible at the time. An affordable rental home gives families a good, healthy place to live while providing them the time to make a plan to achieve homeownership, pay off any debts, and secure employment that doesn’t require moving out of the area or uprooting the family.
We have very little turnover in our rental units, which means that our rentals typically stay full. We do, however, maintain a waiting list. Individuals and families interested in renting from HDA should contact our office at 606-436-0497 or email us. Our staff will determine if the person or family is eligible for our program, and if so, will gather the necessary information and place the name on the list. When a vacancy occurs, HDA chooses the next qualifying applicant in chronological order.

Single Occupancy Apartments for Homeless Individuals
The Housing Development Alliance also maintains a ten unit single-room occupancy apartment building in downtown Hazard. Located on High Street, the apartments are intended to provide an option for single people who need a safe, decent place to live but who are homeless and/or cannot afford to live anywhere else. In our service area, as well as in all of Kentucky and the entire country, there is a shortage of housing for individuals. Many apartments and rental houses are designed to house families. Our High Street housing provides small living quarters for single men and women with little to no income.
Applications for leasing can be obtained through local social service agencies. Please contact our office if you have questions!
