LHA Mission - The Lafayette Housing Authority provides quality, respectful and superior services to promote self sufficiency for all families we serve. We utilize Public Housing, Section 8 HCV, and other affordable housing programs to do so, dedicated to increasing the pride, dignity and self esteem of our community.
The LHA Section 8 Lottery Waiting List was CLOSED on October 14, 2014. The CONFIRMATION numbers of those families who are chosen as part of the Lottery will be posted by November 1, 2014. If your number is listed, you will receive information from the Housing Authority confirming your position on the Waiting List and it will note the proper way to update your information as it changes. It is the family's responsibility to make sure all information is accurate at all times. When your name reaches near the top and a voucher is available, you will be contacted to present your eligibility information and complete other required documents. If you have lost your confirmation number, you may contact the Section 8 Office at 337/232-3515 AFTER November 1, 2014 to see if your name was selected in the lottery. If your family was not selected, you are not on the waiting list. You will not receive any information from the Housing Authority and you will have another opportunity in the future when the Waiting List reopens. NO FUTURE date is scheduled at this time. For Families not making the waiting list - the Housing Authority DOES NOT have any information on your pre-application filed. Only information for those chosen in the lottery is forwarded to the Housing Authority.
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program serves 1,781 Vouchers covering Lafayette and Vermillion Parishes and 65 Veterans Administration Supportive Housing Vouchers (VASH).
"Our Staff at the LHA strive to be professional, friendly and resourceful...We are working diligently to provide quality affordable housing for our Acadian community and meet the needs of our families."
