Southwest Housing Compliance Corporation

SHCC is proud to play a critical role in maintaining and preserving decent, safe and sanitary housing for the residents of Texas and Arkansas.

The Housing Authority of the City of Austin's nonprofit subsidiary, the Southwest Housing Compliance Corporation, serves on the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department's behalf as contract administrator for housing units receiving project-based Section 8 housing assistance in the states of Texas and Arkansas.

In response to the growing needs of Austin residents and the subsequent decline of federal funding to support community development programs, SHCC contributes its revenue to support HACA's goal to acquire and make affordable housing available to residents of Austin. Additionally, SHCC funds support HACA's two primary community development initiatives: drop-out prevention and workforce development. To promote and support higher education among HACA residents, SHCC underwrites a scholarship program for Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher participants.
