Housing Choice Voucher Program
|Eligible families, who are selected from a waiting list, may choose a unit in an area that the Housing Choice Voucher Program serves when an owner is willing to participate in the housing program. Eligible families must pay at least 30% of their adjusted monthly income for rent and utilities. The program will pay the balance to the landlord, as long as the total rent and utility allowances are at or below a payment standard. If the rent is too high, the applicant may be required to find a unit with a lower monthly rent.
Highest priority goes to:
The unit a family selects must meet Housing Quality Standards. Housing staff will inspect the unit before any assistance is paid. The unit will further be inspected at least once a year, as long as assistance is being paid. The unit must always meet federal guidelines by maintaining decent, safe, and sanitary conditions.
A unit must pass inspection before it will be considered for the program. Please use this inspection check list as a guide to determine if your selected unit can be approved for program participation. Click here
