Helping Build Homes and Communities Across Rural America

Founded in 1971, HAC’s mission is to help rural communities build and preserve decent and affordable housing for low-income people.

Throughout its 50 years, HAC has maintained a special focus on the most underserved, highest need groups and regions, including Central Appalachia, the Border Colonias, the Mississippi Delta and rural Southeast, Native American Lands, and farmworker communities.
