Housing Choice Voucher & Project Based Voucher
The most popular program is the Housing Choice Voucher Program
, commonly referred to as a HUD voucher. This program is funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and managed by the Housing Authority.
Under this program, participants are issued a voucher they may use in a unit of their choice where the landlord will accept a voucher and the unit meets Housing Quality Standards. Participants pay approximately 30% of their income toward rent and utilities and the balance of that rent is paid directly to the landlord by the Housing Authority. At least once per year, participants must re-certify and have their rent adjusted to meet their projected household income.
Projected wait times for the Housing Choice Voucher are between 4-5 years. The waiting time depends on the number of participants leaving the program and budgetary constraints.
