Lake County Housing Authority (LCHA) is a public housing agency for qualified low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Lake County Housing Authority manages several funded programs including public housing, HCV (Housing Choice Vouchers), previously Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and subsidized affordable housing units for rental assistance.
