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.

We do not have emergency assistance available. If you are at immediate risk of homelessness you can view our Community Resource List for possible help available in your area.

There is other subsidized housing available in Yamhill County. There might be units available more quickly than you can get a voucher. You can see our list of other affordable units in Yamhill County and call them to see if they have apartments for rent.

It is possible to move into a unit and still stay on our waiting list while you wait for a Voucher. Whether or not the unit is eligible for our program would be determined after you receive a Voucher.
