Austin Pathways HACA Scholarship Ceremony, 1 p.m. July 13 at the Asian American Resource Center

Post-secondary education is an opportunity that is not always available to low-income individuals who live in assisted housing due to financial constraints. We provide scholarships to eligible residents who are living in HACA’s public housing communities and participants of its Housing Choice Voucher program. This support enables these individuals – most of whom are the first in their family to attend college – build the knowledge and skills need to be economically successful and independent of public assistance.
