The Housing Authority of Douglas County, Oregon was established in 1944 in an effort to provide affordable housing in Douglas County, Oregon. The Low Rent Public Housing Program was the first federal HUD program implemented with duplexes developed in Reedsport, Yoncalla, Oakland, Roseburg, Winston, and Riddle. The Section 8 Voucher program was implemented shortly thereafter and allowed for federal assistance to be provided to renters in conjunction with their own landlords. HADCO expanded their affordable housing program in the late 1990's and early 2000's to include tax credit and USDA, Rural Development housing options. Currently HADCO has 423 affordable housing units in their portfolio along with 746 Section 8 vouchers.

The Section 8 Voucher program allows for approximately three million dollars in housing assistance payments to be distributed annually into the community to local landlords. The housing assistance coupled with the distribution of funds needed for the maintenance and capital needs of HADCO housing stock provides essential economic stimulus to the local communities throughout Douglas County.
