Northern Regional Housing Authority (NRHA) provides low income housing at five sites in Taos: Ranchitos, Linda Vista, Cervantes, Gusdorf and Zia Circle. Zia is a site with one-bedroom units while the other sites have one, two-, three- and four-bedroom units.

We also have four outlying sites in the villages of Questa, Penasco, Cimarron and Grants. Questa has efficiency units as well as  two-, three-, and four-bedroom units. Grants has three- and four-bedroom units only.

Prospective tenants must first apply for acceptance to a waiting list. Currently, waiting list applications are available for all sites. Applications can be picked up at our main office at 525 Ranchitos Road, Unit 962, Taos, NM 87571.


NRHA has a Housing Choice Voucher program which provides vouchers for renting from area landlords. The waiting list for that program is closed at this time. The ‘open’or ‘closed’ status of either waiting list will be published locally and on this website in the Current News! section.
