To be considered for the program, the applicant must be on a waiting list or applying through a special program and must meet the basic eligibility requirements which include:
If a family chooses to participate in the HCV program, they must meet the HUD eligibility requirements. Eligibility for a housing choice voucher is determined by the agency based on the family size, total annual gross income, and is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status.
During the eligibility process, the agency will collect information on your family composition, family’s income, and assets. This information will be verified with other local and governmental agencies, employers and financial institutions, and the information will be used to determine program eligibility and the amount of the housing assistance payment that will be offered on your behalf.
