The HACF is an autonomous, non-profit public corporation created to address the need for low-income housing. The Mission of The Housing Authority of the City of Frederick (HACF) is to provide an array of housing options for our citizens by being committed to supporting strong stable communities.
It is governed by a five member Board of Commissioners that is appointed by the Mayor of Frederick and confirmed by the Board of Aldermen. The Executive Director of the Housing Authority of the City of Frederick (HACF) is appointed by the Board and serves as the Secretary/Treasurer while serving on the Board of Commissioners.
The HACF has three major departments: The Department of Physical Services, which is responsible for all maintenance and modernization; The Department of Finance, which is responsible for all administrative, accounting, and procurement functions; and the Department of Housing, which is responsible for overall housing operations.
The operations of HACF are supported by two main sources: rental units and a federal subsidy for the operation, maintenance and modernization of the HACF through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Individual programs within the HACF also accept private donations in order to better serve residents attempting to improve their education and increase their income.
