Affordable Rentals

The Housing Development Alliance owns and maintains 20 rental units. These units are designed to provide accessible, high quality, affordable housing for low-income families. Our goal is for families to own an affordable home, but in some cases, renting is a better option. For some families, 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 uprooting the family.

We have very little turnover in our rental units, which means that our rentals typically stay occupied. We do, however, maintain a waiting list. Families interested in renting from HDA should contact our office. Our staff will determine if the family is eligible for our program, and if so, will gather the necessary information and place the family on the list. When a vacancy occurs, HDA chooses the next qualifying applicant in chronological order. 

We Offer:

Single-Family Rental Homes

These are HDA-built rental homes that are located in various locations in Perry County. Currently, we do not have rental homes in any of our other counties, but we hope to offer this option in our other counties sometime in the future.

PCCOC ("Peacock") Duplexes

HDA currently maintains three duplexes (six units), all located in the Hazard City Limits. A "duplex" is a residential building constructed on two floors. It has a single dining room and a single kitchen. It consists of two living units, either side-by-side or on two floors, with separate entries. While there are two floors, it is most often rented as a single unit by one family.

Examples of HDA rental properties

In addition to rental homes, HDA also maintains apartments for rent. (The photo at center shows one of HDA’s apartment buildings, where two single-unit apartments have been made available for individuals on very-low or extremely-low incomes.)

High Street Apartments

Section 8 Housing

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 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!
