The Housing Choice Vouchers program is a rent subsidy program that assists eligible low-income persons and their families in obtaining affordable, decent, and safe housing by paying a portion of their rent. Eligible applicants locate a unit in the private rental market. Rent must be within the current allowed Payment Standards. The tenant pays between 30% and 40% of their gross income for rent. Participants are required to have an annual inspection.
The Section 8/HCV staff cannot see walk-ins. All visitors must have a scheduled appointment to meet with staff members.
