Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to high rise apartments for elderly families. These properties are owned and managed by BCACHA. BCACHA also administers voucher programs that help pay your rent and allow you to choose the neighborhood and unit you wish to live in. * Supportive Housing - BCACHA’s Supportive Housing Programs provide at-risk populations with stable housing arrangements that include intensive case management and supportive services to address individual needs. At-risk populations include homeless individuals and families, people with physical, mental, or developmental disabilities, military veterans, and other target groups that need affordable housing. * Market Rate Housing - In addition to providing subsidized and supportive housing programs, BCACHA offers nearly 200 rental units ranging in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms, in Ada County.
