Housing Authority

Administering Federal Housing Subsidies

The Lafayette Housing Authority, created in 1974 by resolution of the City of Lafayette, administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH), both funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

This office:
  • Administers the federal programs 
  • Processes applications, determines eligibility
  • Provides affordable, safe, sanitary housing opportunities in the private sector
  • Educates participants and landlords on the program 

Consolidated Plan Survey

The City of Lafayette is working through multiple planning processes this spring and summer. The first planning process is the 2019 Action Plan, the final year of the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and method for allocating CDBG and HOME funding beginning July 1, 2019.


The next planning process is the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan/2020 Action Plan and 2020 Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI). The Consolidated Plan and AI will involved a more extensive public input process, allowing the public to set and approve the priorities and goals for the next five year’s worth of HUD funding. Once receiving guidance from the community, the City of Lafayette will allocate funding in 2020 to projects and programs that meet those priorities and goals.


The link below is a very brief survey - four questions total - to help inform the Consolidated Plan and AI planning processes. Please take a few moments from your day to complete the survey and forward to any resident in Lafayette and Tippecanoe County who may be interested. We will accept responses until March 22nd. Thank you.
