Rental Housing

The Cumberland County Housing Authority can assist seniors, the disabled, those with special needs and the homeless locate affordable rental housing, and has programs available in specific cases to provide financial assistance to meet housing needs.

Managing properties in both Cumberland and Perry Counties, our apartment facilities provide quality, affordable, housing options for residents. Some are located in downtowns—such as the Molly Pitcher in Carlisle, convenient to shopping and services—while others are nestled in more rural settings, like Mountain View in Newville. All allow their tenants to feel at home.

The Authority administers the Housing Choice Voucher Program, formerly referred to as Section 8. The vast majority of financially-assisted units are not managed by the Authority but rather private owners.

New in 2013, the Authority now manages Crossroads—innovative rental housing for families located in Lower Allen Twp.
