About RCHA

The RCHA is within the city of Red Cloud, Webster County, Nebraska and located south of the tri-cities of Hastings, Grand Island and Kearney, Nebraska and five miles north of the Kansas-Nebraska state line.

The Red Cloud Housing Authority (RCHA) was established in 1961 by a Cooperation Agreement between the Housing Authority and the City of Red Cloud, Nebraska. The Red Cloud Housing Authority provides clean, safe, and affordable housing. The Housing Authority offers Efficiency,1,2 and 3-bedroom units. Handicap-accessible units are also available.

The mission of the RCHA is to be the area's affordable housing of choice. We provide and maintain safe, quality housing in a cost-effective manager. By partnering with others, we offer rental assistance and other related services to our community in a non-discriminatory manner.
