Housing Authority Of Indiana County


Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

Our mission at the Housing Authority of Indiana County is to help improve the quality of life; to provide a safe, sanitary home and a suitable living environment that is affordable to elderly persons, families and those with special needs consistent with Local, State and Federal statutes

History of Organization

In 1969, the Indiana County Commissioners saw a need in the county to provide safe and affordable housing for individuals, families, the elderly and those with special needs on low to moderate incomes. Conemaugh Terrace, 24 units in Blairsville Borough, was Indiana County's first subsidized housing community. This was the start of our agency, the Housing Authority of Indiana County (HAIC). Morewood Towers in Blairsville quickly followed, offering not only another housing community, but also providing office space on the first floor of the building. As our agency continued to expand, we saw a need to be more centrally located so that our services would be more accessible to all residents of Indiana County. We constructed a new building at 104 Philadelphia Street, Indiana, and moved to our current location in 1992. Four decades later, HAIC now owns, operates or provides rental assistance for more than 760 housing units throughout Indiana County. We manage and maintain 221 units at 10 sites, each offering a secure, pleasant environment where residents can enjoy all the comforts of home in a small town. Rental assistance is provided to 569 households leasing from private landlords through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. HAIC is a progressive agency, which established a non-profit affiliate, the Housing Alliance of Indiana County, Inc. (the Alliance) in 1993 to serve as our development arm. The Alliance operates on a regional basis. Through a variety of public/private partnerships, the Alliance has been involved in the development of 21 affordable housing projects located in Allegheny, Armstrong, Mercer, Somerset and of course, Indiana County. HAIC remains committed to addressing the housing needs of Indiana County with quality housing and excellent service.
