Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) By U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
- KIRTI SOLANKI
The HCV program, the country's largest rent assistance program, helps elderly and disabled and low-income families find safe, decent and hygienic housing units in the private market.
Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by the PHA based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to US citizens.
As a program participant, generally, you pay 30% of your adjusted monthly income for rent and the Housing Authority pays the balance to the owner.
You can get HCVP rental assistance as long as you comply with the lease and as long as your family income is within the HCVP income range.
