Report Household and Income Changes

Residents should use the Change Report form below to report any household changes to HACC. Please print and complete the form and return it to HACC within 7 days of any change in income, household composition, or contact information. Failure to report changes could lead to a loss of housing assistance.

HACC will provide "reasonable accommodations" to applicants and participants of HACC's Housing Choice Voucher Program. A reasonable accommodation is some modification or change HACC can make to its policies or procedures that will assist an otherwise eligible person with a disability to attain equal participation in HACC's programs.

To make a Reasonable Accommodation request, complete and submit the Request for a Reasonable Accommodation form.
