Unlike the other government funded housing programs, the HCV Program gives its participants a CHOICE!
The Housing Choice Voucher Program provides low income households with housing support while they work to achieve their personal and financial goals, ultimately creating long term sustainable economic independence.
The most important aspect of the Housing Choice Voucher Program is the eligible family’s ability to choose a unit. When we give the participant the choice of selecting their home, it no longer becomes just an assistance program, we have now created an opportunity.
Families’ on the program can look and select a unit in the private rental market within the agency’s jurisdiction or outside the agency’s jurisdiction and receive rental subsidy based on their income.
Landlord’s who choose to participate in the program are also able to select the eligible family, through their own screening process.
