The Berks County Housing Authority (BCHA) is a governmental Public Housing Agency organized under the laws of Pennsylvania and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The BCHA was organized over 40 years ago to meet the housing needs of residents of Berks County, many of whom could not otherwise afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing.
The Berks County Housing Authority is an Equal Opportunity Housing Agency.
You are required to notify the Berks County Housing Authority, in writing, of all changes in address after you submit this pre-application. Failure to report changes may result in your removal from the waiting list without further notice.
Attention HCV Applicants: The only change that must be reported is your address. The only way we will contact you for the initial interview is by mail. All other information (phone number, household composition, income/job changes) will only be verified at the time of the initial interview, once you are scheduled to come to our office.
This does not apply to Public Housing applicants. Public housing applicants must continue to report all changes of household composition in addition to their address.
