This is the top of the page that shows on all of the pages on this website other than on PDF files. This header has five small pictures and a logo for the Housing Authority. First on the left top of the page is a small picture of a woman wearing a red blouse with her arm over a young woman who has long hair. Behind them is a one story house with red trim and brownish paint. Next to this picture is the logo: it says in blue lettering Housing Authority (carriage return) of Yamhill County | below that is a red pitch of a roof with only the pitch and chimney showing - it's a graphic. Below that is in bolder blue lettering with the letters in all caps HAYC.  Next to the logo is a small picture of five children in a huddle. The photo is taken from beneath looking up at their faces.  The next picture, the third one, is of a white set of housing complexes with a cement walkway leading to the one in the back.  The fourth picture is of a class going on. You can see in the foreground someone with a pen in her hand writing on a paper with a book of some kind open in front then you see people sitting looking away toward someone in the background leading the class who is writing on some kind of white board. The last picture in this header is the side of a two story apartment complex that is white with light blue trim, you can see shrubs and a few trees also. Below this header on the left side of all the pages (except pdf pages) are menus that will take you to various pages - some of these menus drop down to the right with a mouse positioned over the menu item if there are subcategories. Each one is a link to either a page or a pdf file. Below the menus is a search box where you can search text on this site including inside pdf files.

Wherever you are on the path of home ownership, we offer a wide variety of programs and resources to assist you.

Our Resource Center offers counseling for anything that relates to being, or aiming to be a homeowner: credit repair, financial literacy classes, pre-purchase, teaching the ABC's of Homeownership. The Resource Center is located HAYC's office building and provides two (2) computer consoles for Internet access to help you find a job, seek education, and pursue housing needs.

Our Housing Rehabilitation Program targets low and moderate-income, owner-occupied homeowners to help make affordable repairs to homes located in Yamhill County, for as little as 0% interest with deferred payments.

Our Home-Buying Program's ultimate goal is to provide homes at an affordable price. We partner with the Yamhill County Affordable Housing Corporation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, to turn homes around and first offer them to our clients working toward self-sufficiency and homeownership. If we don't find a match, we then place the real estate on the open market.

The Valley Individual Development Account (VIDA) Program provides opportunity and support for clients working toward self-sufficiency by matching $1.00 of your money with $3.00 from this specially funded program ... up to a maximum match of $9,000.00!! These funds can help individuals reach goals of homeownership, mobile home repairs, and post-secondary education.

If you are facing Foreclosure on your home, we are here for you. We are a State Approved Counseling Center funded through Oregon Housing and Community Services and the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services. Our goal is to help you affordably stay in your home.

If you are a Renter currently on the Housing Choice Voucher Program, and you are interested in the American dream of owning a home, we have two programs to help you in your endeavor:

  • The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program: By working closely with your caseworker to increase your earned income, you can build up a significant savings account. This savings can be applied towards a down payment on a home purchase.

  • The Housing Choice Voucher for Homeownership (HCVH) Program: Instead of assisting you in your monthly rent to a Landlord, this program assists you with your mortgage payment! This program helps increase the amount you are qualified to borrow making first time home ownership a reality for lower income families.
