Housing Choice Vouchers
This program provides eligible households vouchers to help pay the rent on privately owned homes of their choosing. A family receiving a voucher must pay at least 30 percent of its month adjusted gross income for rent and utilities. The vouchers are generally administered and can by applied for through local (city) housing authorities.

This program provides subsidies to select rental complexes to help offset the cost of construction and rehabilitation. In exchange, Project-Based Rental Assisted units can bridge the difference between rent and what a low-income tenant can afford.

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics.

If you currently have a Section 8 HCV you can move (also called “port”) to another city or State.  You will always want to start by contacting the housing authority that has issued your Housing Choice Voucher.
