The Lancaster Housing Authority (HAL) has been providing housing assistance to low-income families in Lancaster County, South Carolina since 1969. Their mission is to ensure that all homeless people have the opportunity to enter the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) database and receive the help they need. The HMIS is a shared database system on housing and homelessness managed in South Carolina, which allows authorized personnel from partner agencies to share information about customers and follow trends and service patterns over time. The South Carolina government uses the VI-SPDAT (also known as the vulnerability index) and the HMIS to gather information about the individual circumstances of clients to help refer them to appropriate housing and services. Those with a Section 8 housing choice voucher administered by this housing authority must rent within their jurisdiction.
The public housing waiting list for 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments is currently open. The Lancaster Housing Authority also provides links to other websites in an effort to help users find information on topics that may be of interest to them.
