Housing Choice Voucher

This program, formerly known as Section 8, allows very low-income families to choose and lease affordable privately-owned rental housing. Tenants can utilize rental vouchers to find their own units and live in any neighborhood they wish. Many take advantage of portability features of the program to transfer to other parts of the country. The term "Section 8" is used to describe the various housing choice voucher programs because the federal law which enacted them was Section 8 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.

Housing Choice Voucher Program Non Elderly Disabled (NED)

NED is a program for the Non-Elderly Disabled under the Housing Choice Voucher program. In order to qualify for NED's, the Head of Household, spouse, or co-head must be disabled and under 62 years of age at the time of eligibility.

HCV Tenant Based Voucher Program

"Tenant-based" vouchers increase affordable housing choices for very low-income families. Families with a tenant-based voucher choose and lease safe, decent, and affordable privately-owned rental housing.

HCV Project Based Voucher Program

"Project-based" rental assistance differs from "tenant-based" rental assistance, which low-income families can use to rent any private apartment that meets program guidelines. The main form of tenant-based rental assistance is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Public Housing

These units are available for anyone that meets income and program eligibility requirements regardless of age, unless otherwise noted. Eligible applicants are not allowed to select the actual development to be housed. This program includes scattered sites. Once your name reaches the top of the waitlist and your file is complete, the next available unit will be offered to the next certified eligible applicant by required bedroom size. If the unit is refused twice, your application will be withdrawn.

Mixed Finance Properties

Mixed-Finance public housing allows HUD to mix public, private, and non-profit funds to develop and operate housing developments. New developments may be made up of a variety of housing types: rental, homeownership, private, subsidized, and public housing. These new communities are built for residents with a wide range of incomes, and are designed to fit into the surrounding community.

PBV-RAD Properties

These are Project Based Voucher-Rental Assistance Demonstration Properties. The "Rental Assistance Demonstration" was created in order to give public housing authorities (PHAs) a powerful tool to preserve and improve public housing properties and address the $26 billion dollar nationwide backlog of deferred maintenance. RAD also gives owners of three HUD "legacy" program (Rent Supplement, Rental Assistance Payment, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation) the opportunity to enter into long-term contracts that facilitate the financing of improvements.

Non-Aided Properties

These units do not receive subsidy from HUD, however rents are affordable for low-income applicants.
