Housing Authority of the City of Pueblo

About the HACP

The Housing Authority of the City of Pueblo (HACP) was created as a quasi-governmental agency in 1953 through the United States Federal Housing Act of 1937 for the purpose of providing public housing and rental assistance to low-income families and individuals. HACP receives subsidy assistance from the Federal government in order to provide housing to eligible low-income households. HACP is therefore mandated to comply with Federal Regulations pertaining to rental assistance as well as the Fair Housing Act of 1988, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin.
