HCV (Housing Choice Vouchers, previously Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers)

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program formerly known as Section 8 provides housing assistance low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled, allowing them to live in decent, safe, and sanitary housing for eligible participants. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family, participants are able to find their own housing. Housing choices include single-family homes, townhouses, or apartments. Participants are free to choose housing that meets the requirements of the program and are not limited to subsidized units. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
