Western Carolina Community Action (WCCA) (828) 693-1711
Western Carolina Community Action (WCCA) is the designated public housing agency for Henderson County and distributes Section 8 Vouchers. The Section 8 Voucher Program is a rent subsidy program funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The programs enable very low-income families to obtain standard housing.
To be eligible, an applicant individual or family must be very low-income (below 50% of area median). Families/individuals are expected to contribute 30% of adjusted monthly income toward rent and utility expenses; the balance, subject up to established ceilings, is subsidized.
A list of affordable rental units in the community is also made available to the general public at WCCA.
